Sailing Away from Winter by Silver Donald Cameron($26; 2006;McClelland and Stewart, www.mcclelland.com). Is there still adventure and white-knuckle danger in a passage from Atlantic Canada to the white-sand beaches of the Bahamas? The answer for this intrepid Canadian sailing couple and their geriatric dog, Leo, is a resounding yes. As they wander down the length of the Eastern Seaboard, celebrated Canadian author Cameron and his wife, Marjorie, travel more than 3000 miles, surviving a series of near catastrophes and meeting a cast of unforgettable characters along the way. Winter is a must-read, both for those who've already made such a journey and for those who dream of doing so.
