Robb White tells of a lifetime spent building and sailing boats; the topics of his stories range from his wild and idyllic childhood to being a grandfather. His weathered voice and Southern accent are pleasant, occasional stumbles notwithstanding, though some sections in which the quality of his voice sounds noticeably different are jarring. The stories that are thick with details of tools, engines, and boats will lose the non-technical listener. But White's character comes through in his voice as he describes a way of life unknown to most of us. Though he's cantankerous, White's real subject is joy; it would be a shame to miss him telling of it. W.M. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
