About the Author

Audrey Sutherland grew up in California but lived in Hawai'i from 1952 until her death in 2015 at the age of 94. She raised her four children as a single mother, supporting her family by working as a school counselor. In 1962, she decided to explore the coast of Moloka'i by swimming it while towing an inflatable raft with supplies, a story told in Paddling My Own Canoe (Patagonia, 2018). Ever after she was an inveterate water traveler. She was also the author of Paddling Hawai'i. Yoshiko Yamamoto is one of the premier block printers in the Arts and Crafts style. Yamamoto's block prints are letterpress printed using hand cut blocks on acid free paper. She is the co-owner of The Arts and Crafts Press, and co-author of several books about the arts and crafts movement, published by Gibbs Smith and Chronicle.

The most isolated and spectacular seacoast in Hawaii is on the northeast side of Molokai. . . . Audrey Sutherland set out alone . . . . Her account is first-rate adventure . . . For the armchair traveler as well as the adventurer. -- Publishers Weekly review of the first edition * Publishers Weekly *
More than adventure, it's a human being's joyous response to, and interaction with, the forces of nature. -- Honolulu Advertiser * Honolulu Advertiser *
