Big adventures on the high seas—from one of the greatest seafaring writers of our age Hal Roth’s vivid, authentic tales of the sea have riveted readers around the world for forty years. Here, in one volume, are three of his classic sea stories, each one a white-knuckled, rail-down voyage into the unknown. A hard-working San Francisco husband and wife abandon their jobs, their security, and, some would say, their sanity to sail their 35-foot sloop to Japan and back—the long way! Over the next nineteen months, they discover exotic islands, fascinating people, and a whole new way of life. A few years later these intrepid voyagers decide to try their luck against Cape Horn, but they will need a lot more than luck to survive the vicious storms, violent seas, and perilous shores of the world’s most dangerous stretch of water. Then nine courageous sailors accept a challenge to do what has never been done before: to race alone, in a small sailboat, around the world—nonstop. Only one will complete the race; seven will be forced to withdraw, and one will simply disappear.

Because composition students will major in a wide variety of disciplines, Fields of Reading draws on the major divisions of the curriculum -- arts and humanities, social sciences and public affairs, and sciences and technologies -- to present well-crafted and high-quality writing from these fields. Chosen by five editors who are all distinguished teachers and writers, the selections are organized in each division by writing purpose (reflecting, reporting, explaining, and arguing) in order to show how writing must be suited to a particular situation in order to be effective. Students are thus exposed to important readings by key voices in contemporary intellectual life -- the kind of thought-provoking pieces one expects to encounter in college. The unique dual organization by academic discipline and rhetorical purpose helps students to understand how subject, intent, and audience influence the form and style of their own writing.
