Simply Sailing is the story of a young couple who sold their house, cars, and everything that wouldn't fit on a 34-foot sailboat, resigned from their jobs, and with three young sons, set off on a life of adventure. What they discovered will delight, entertain, and inspire readers to chase their own dreams, to find a solution to the problems that are holding them back, and to finally live. The McBrides show by example how easily one can eliminate stress, become more independent, spend more time with your children, and avoid the traps of commercialism. By simplifying their lives and taking an eco-friendly approach, this family wanders and explores for longer, rather than rushing to stop at the places on the list before the money runs out. Cruisers will learn how to change a trip into a lifestyle, raise their children in a safer environment, and instill values not based on the mighty dollar, while seeing parts of the world that many others will never experience. Simply Sailing offers lighthearted tales of the adventures and woes experienced by a sailing family. It includes tips for avoiding common pitfalls, simplifying your boat and life, and making a small boat a comfortable home. The stories and advice inspire would-be sailors to leave sooner, travel farther, and enjoy life more fully.

Simply by sailing in a new direction You could enlarge the world. – 'Landfall in Unknown Seas' hang on to your hands anything can happen – 'Two Pedestrians with One Thought' Allen Curnow (1911–2001) is widely recognised as one of the most distinguished poets writing in English in the second half of the twentieth century. From Valley of Decision (1933) to The Bells of Saint Babel's (2001) he defined and redefined how poetry might discover the possibilities of a world seen afresh. Through relationships with writers from Dylan Thomas to C. K. Stead he influenced the changing shape of modern poetry. And in criticism and anthologies like the Penguin Book of New Zealand Verse he helped identify the distinctive imaginative preoccupations that made New Zealand's writing and culture different from elsewhere. By the time of his death at the age of ninety, he had completed a body of work unique in this country and increasingly recognised internationally. This major biography introduces readers to Allen Curnow's life and work: from a childhood in a Christchurch vicarage, through theological training, journalism and university life, marriages and children, and on to an international career as a writer of poetry, plays, satire and criticism. The book lucidly identifies the shifting textures of Curnow's writing and unravels the intersections between life and words. The result of over a decade's research and writing, Simply by Sailing in a New Direction offers deep insight into the development of New Zealand literature and culture.
