by | Read by David Hays, Daniel Hays

Biography & Memoir • 3 hrs. • Abridged • © 1995

David and Daniel Hays test the strength of their tiny boat, SPARROW, as well as the strength of their relationship on a 17,000-mile journey to Cape Horn and back. David's reflective, almost constant analysis of their adventures (both internal and external) plays marvelously off his son's lighthearted, sometimes boyishly bumbling captain's log entries. The alternating voices bring their experiences to life while simultaneously recreating the oftentimes humorous, oftentimes touching situations they encounter. More than a travel story, MY OLD MAN AND THE SEA is the chronicle of a father-and-son adventure, the coming together of two men to learn from one another.
