Just Published The Sea Was Always There by Joseph Callo
Foreword by John Lehman
“Your writing is gripping.” “Leaves as clean an impression as a sharply cut seal pressed into liquid wax.” “Adventurous, courageous, questioning, and open to unfamiliar ideas.”
This is one man’s story about learning from the sea. It includes the joy, pain, victory, defeat, surprises, and humor involved in the process. The narrative spans the globe from the east coast of the Indian Ocean, across the Pacific, Caribbean, Atlantic, and into the Mediterranean. The many different personal episodes that are woven into this book are true stories.
The Sea Was Always There is based on personal experiences drawn from four sources:
NAVY: two challenging years at sea as an officer in the U.S. Navy, plus more than three decades as a U.S. Navy Reserve officer. SAILING: skippering boats ranging from a sailing dinghy in the lower Hudson River’s Haverstraw Bay, to a daysailer in the Indian Ocean off Fremantle, to fifty-foot boats in the Caribbean, and crewing in a square rigged replica of Captain Cook’s Endeavour. TRAVEL: places with evocative maritime connections. WRITING: learning about two seagoing heroes who shaped history during the age of sail.
