First Edition with full numberline 302 pages plus a center section of color photographs on glossy stock From jacket: "Tania Aebi is the first American woman - and the youngest person ever - to sail around the world alone. (This book) tells the story of the coming-of-age of this troubled young girl - an 18-year-old whose life was going nowhere until she made the inner journey that would prove to be just as extraordinary as her true-life edge-of-the-seat adventure. Tania was a teenager working as a bicycle messenger in New York CIty and hanging out in Lower East Side bards until 4:00 a.m. when her father offered her a challenge: Tania could choose either a college education or a 26-foot sloop. The only catch was that if she chose the sailboat she would have to sail around the world - alone - and do some growing up along the way."
