Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

John Pollack chronicles his efforts to carry out a childhood dream--to build a boat made of corks. He describes all aspects of the boat's construction: how he got his partner to join him, how he collected corks from local restaurants and friends, how he got sponsorship from Cork Supply USA, and how the boat was built in a garage. The boat is a symbol of hope and accomplishment for all who dare to reach for their dreams. Pollack's narrative is heartfelt and amusing. Filled with feeling, it lets listeners be part of his greatest accomplishment and makes them unable to resist cheering him on. J.F.M. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/ JUL 04]
