The Harrowing Side of Addie Greene’s How The Winds Laughed

12 Dec



Author Addie Greene’s memoir, How the Winds Laughed, recounts her harrowing, yet  exhilarating coming-of-age circumnavigation of the globe in a 28-foot wooden (yes,wooden) boat, as a young wife with her then-husband Pete.  They encounter broken masts, cyclones, the amazing generosity of the native peoples, as well as the oppressiveness of 1970’s apartheid, witnessed first-hand. 

Here is another photo, recently redigitized, showing the towering mast of their boat,Wa,  which needed countless repairs during their voyage, often involving a daunting climb all the way up–sometimes during a wild and dangerous storm! 



Seek out the full tale by purchasing her book in print or ebook format.
