Voyager is far more than the story of a boy and his boat. It is a tribute to the human spirit, to the courage of a young man willing to chase his dreams, even when those dreams are waylaid by love, loss, war, and rabbit trails he never expected to find along the journey that has been his lifelong dream.
From the tumult of the sea to the unknowns and the horrors of war, Mr. VerValin's writing is brilliant, storytelling at its finest. From Hawaiian shores to destinations abroad, through the archives of American history, the unknowns of combat and battle, and into the deepest core of a young man's heart, Voyager will take the reader on a page-turning voyage they won't soon forget.
