In The Cruise of the Arctic Star, Scott O'Dell takes a voyage up
the length of the California coast in his cedar-hulled offshore
cruiser named Arctic Star. With his wife Elizabeth along as skilled
navigator and cook, a friend Del as cohort and deckhand, and an
unpredictable hired hand named Rodney Lambert, the crew journeys up
the coast and experiences first hand the delights and drama of life
at sea along this beautiful shoreline. Along the way, the author
relates the colorful narratives of California's past through the
stories of men and women like Cabrillo, Viscaino, Junipero Serra,
Kate Sessions, Kit Carson, Jedediah Smith and many more. Drawing
from journals of other notable visitors like Richard Henry Dana,
Robert Louis Stevenson, and Sir Francis Drake, readers are given a
window into life in California hundreds of years ago.
