The Wreck of the Zephyr

(Paperback) - 07/03/2013


The Wreck of the Zephyr RRP £6.99


At the edge of a cliff lies the wreck of a small sailboat. How did it get there? “Waves carried it up in a storm,” says an old sailor. But is it possible that waves could ever go that high?

There is another story ­– the story of a boy and his desire to be the greatest sailor, the story of a storm that carried the boy and his boat to a place where boats glide like gulls high above the water.
