Reviews

Taleisin's Tales captures a sweet moment in the sailing career of "the first couple of cruising"--a time when Lin and Larry didn't quite know their boat, or each other in it; a time when Taleisin was still a fair-weather craft whose dinghy threatened to come loose in the first blow and whose locker latches still failed to secure their contents; a time before two mere mortals had grown into the legends they would become. Through forty years of writing, Lin Pardey's gift has always been to capture the joyful metaphysics of an adventuresome love affair in the bronze-and-wood details of boomkins and bobstays. Talesin's Tales takes us through the early steps, uncertain at first but ever more confidently toward farther horizons, steps that ultimately lead to the one shared life which just may turn out to be the happiest in all of our voyaging literature." --Tim Murphy "Cruising World "

"I'm not sure which writer I admire more: the young girl in lust with tomorrow's cruise or the respected sailing sage looking back on a life well lived on a small boat cluttered with large dreams. One thing I know is that Lin's pen has been whispering to me for over forty years now--and this is one of her best."

--Author, voyager "Cap't Fatty Goodlander "

"Lin Pardey has done it again! Her first full-length cruising narrative in many years is as fresh and relevant as those tales that entertained and inspired a generation of sailors decades ago. Once you step aboard, you won't want to step off again."

--Charley Doane "Sail Magazine "
