SAILING INTO THE ABYSS. TRUE TRAVEL AND ADVENTURE
TRUE CRIME AND PUNISHMENT VOL 1
This is a life-changing true story of drug-running across the Pacific. A young girl, with a passion for sailing and adventure, gets approached to transport an illegal cargo from Colombia to the US. She battles with storms, snakes, and interminable days at sea whilst facing deprivations barely imaginable, before finally being intercepted by a Mexican gunboat in waters infested with Great White Sharks.
Her subsequent incarceration in Mexico’s most infamous prison, La Mesa, is almost more surprising: the treatment she receives and the people she meets become a transformative experience, as she recounts in this totally compelling personal journey.
This is truly an extraordinary travel and adventure story of a remarkable young woman operating in a man’s world.
