    1 thought on “Kayaking the Vermilion Sea: Eight Hundred Miles Down the Baja”

    1. I was really looking forward to this book, as a complement to Steinbeck and as a tale of Kayaking adventure. However, the author is a journalist, and not a novelist. The story is told as a series of essays that do not really join into a coherent narrative, and that seem repetitive after a while. The description of his relationship with his wife was at times uncomfortable - they both seem difficult at best. The journey seems to have been an ordeal, weighed down by a preoccupation with the damage, [...]

    2. Of the two Waterman books I have read this is not the better of the two. Here he brings his readers along a kayaking trip in the Sea of Cortez with his strained relationship with his wife. The straight forward prose on the subject never get the adventurer in me going and he seems distracted with his relationship problems which could work on one level but again the book is more of a retelling of his diary than anything else.

    3. I used this book in a college class for personal applications. I really enjoyed the short quotes at the beginning of each chapter and how those quotes tied into the following narrative. However, the chapters got a bit boring at times and it felt like a struggle to continue. The personal journey of the female companion was predictable. In the end, I was glad I read it but also glad to be finished with the book.

    4. very literary in content as compared to the blog-like "Baja Bound" I'm also reading. Also different in the sense that this couple is kayaking the entire length of Baja whereas the others drove from beach to beach (a more realistic trip for most people). Offers a lot more history of the region - so far a very enjoyable read.
