Seasoned by Salt is the fascinating account of a one-year cruise, from Connecticut to Grenada and back, undertaken by a sailing couple. The book alternates throughout between their two complementary voices as they relive their journey. They are not your average tourists. Their story is brimming with humor and high adventure, and reflects a deep understanding of the history, people, and economy of the many islands that they visited. During their journey, they develop an understanding of the historical bond between North America and the Caribbean, particularly their intertwined colonial past and their shared legacy of slavery and racial division. This book is a romance, a comedy, a search for personal meaning, and above all a wonderful sailing story that finds subtle parallels between individuals' relationships and nations' and explores the crucial and continuing ties between the sea and history.
