    • Maud Fontenoy knew the sea. Her first fifteen years of life were spent living aboard a fifty-one foot staysail schooner with her parents and two brothers. She knew what it meant to be self-sufficient, to weather storms, to acknowledge the sea’s powerful force. But in order to accomplish being the first woman to row across the North Atlantic, she had a host of other skills to learn.Across the Savage Sea: The First Woman to Row Across the North Atlantic is a remarkable memoir of one woman’s de [...]


    • ordered 1/28/10;picked up 2/3/10overnight read. This was a very condensed version of an Atlantic (North route) crossing. Despite it's short length, I believe it hit all the salient points of weather, hardship, financial backing preparation, number of hours rowed, daily routine, and contemporary communication patterns. All the northern Atlantic crossings I've read have had to deal with severe weather which leaves the boats as floating coffins that end up making progress by weather wash and drifti [...]


    • A quick read about an ocean crossing that borders on insanity. It's an endeavor that rivals any I've ever read about. Her first night on the water leaves your mouth open and that easily fuels your interest to read more. The obstacles she faces makes you want to nudge strangers on the bus and have them read a few paragraphs so they can share in your astonishment. Her feat is nothing less than amazing. She makes an Everest expedition look like a walking tour.


    • I didn't find the author to be likeable so it was difficult to empathize with her as she struggled in her journey across the Atlantic Ocean. I understand personal challenge and pushing oneself outside of our comfort zone but I have to admit I do not understand the desire to cross the Atlantic in a customized rowboat.i just don't get it.


    • This was really an amazing adventure. I read a lot of this genre and this book will stand out in my mind for a long time.



    • Incredible story of a 25 year old French woman facing every disaster that could occur in a small row boat across the North Atlantic.


    • Because the journeys are so similar, I was constantly comparing this book to Tori McClure's book A Pearl in the Storm. The writing style of McClure's book appealed to me more.


    • I'm not sure what gets into people who decide to do such crazy things, but I love to read about how they manage to conquer their fears.
