“A delightful book that will appeal not only to those interested in sailing, but to anyone who’s ever tasted wanderlust or dreamt of breaking free from ‘normal’ life and doing something truly extraordinary.
Harrison blends journal entries, unique historical commentary, song lyrics, personal photos, and more in his adventure autobiography of a couple in the 1970’s who make it through challenging and oftentimes hilarious odds.
Quirky, heartfelt, and fun, Sailing Down the Mountain is a must-read that transcends generations.”
"[D]irect, heartfelt and totally honest without self consciousness or pretension.... Passion is a rare commodity and that is what comes through on every page."

"[A] dream, a boat, an adventure, a book... a rewarding journey"
– Cammy Clark, The Miami Herald
"[A] remarkable story—equal parts quixotic adventure, challenging physical labor, and spirtual journey—with wit, grace, and self-deprecating humor"
– H.A. Harrison, director of Pollock-Krasner House
