The classic tale by Lin Pardey, now in a beautifully-produced audio edition
BULL CANYON: A BOATBUILDER, A WRITER, AND OTHER WILDLIFE ... a story only Lin and Larry Pardey could live, and only Lin could tell, read for audio by Michelle Murillo
Internationally known for their sailing adventures, in 1980 - fresh from an 11-year journey where they forged the early days of their marriage on high seas and in exotic locales - Lin and Larry Pardey came to California looking for a good spot to build a boat, test Lin's skills as a writer, and taste the apparent security life ashore could offer.
Nestled in a rocky outcropping of sparsely populated dirt roads 60 miles from the sea and 50 miles from Los Angeles, Bull Canyon would seem an unlikely place for boat-building. Yet when Lin and Larry set eyes on the abandoned stone cottage at the top of a rutted dusty lane, it was love at first sight. The house was certainly a fixer-upper, but there was plenty of room to build the boat which would become their soon-to-be-famed Lyle Hess designed cutter Taleisin.
This remarkable book tells the tale charmingly and engagingly - as only Lin Pardey can.
Originally published in 2011, Bull Canyon has never since been out of print. New Street Nautical Audio is now proud to present Lin's brilliant and vibrant story in its first audio edition.
