Navigated by only the Stars and the Seas, an Epic Worldwide Voyage of Action and ConnectionFrom the launch in Hawai'i in May 2014, around the world 60,000 miles, to 23 different countries, this beautiful hardcover book chronicles Hokule'a's epic mission to raise awareness of and nurture worldwide sustainability. Interwoven with descriptions of Hokule'a's experiences in port are the voices of the master navigators and crew members, who guide the ship along the ocean's trackless path using only stars, birds, wind, and seas - non-instrumental wayfinding techniques - and the local pioneers - scientists, teachers, and children touched by Hokule'a' - who work tirelessly to weather the many environmental challenges in our modern lives.
