David and his Uncle Owen's close relationship is largely based on a mutual respect for the sea and a fascination with sailing. When Uncle Owen dies, he bequeaths to David his boat, the Frog, and leaves his nephew with a dying wish: that David should scatter his ashes far out on the open sea. In attempting to fulfill his uncle's wish, David gets caught in a storm that throws him far off course and puts his sailing skills to the test. The powerful survival story is filled with adventure and emotion. (Age 12 and older)
