For Dave Schaefer on his 32-foot sloop Dream Weaver, the urge to see Cuba now and track down Ernest Hemingway's old haunts was too strong to resist. The voyage began on Lake Champlain near Burlington, Vermont. Travelling alone, with friends joining as crew when they could, Schafer sailed through the historic Champlain Canal to the Hudson river, along the East coast and the Intracoastal Waterway, finally arriving at the keys. Leaving Key west, Schaefer sailed 90 miles across the Gulf Stream to Marina Hemingway in Havana. For the entire century, Cuba had been the stage for the glamorous and powerful; Teddy Roosevelt's charge up San Juan Hill, the mob years under Meyer Lansky, Krushchev and Kennedy bringing the world to the brink of war over missile installations, the disaster at the Bay of Pigs, the charisma of che, and endless embargoes.

La nostra recensione

...Schaefer discovered a people politically repressed but filled with a passion for life despite their lack of material possessions. * Cruising World * ...a thoroughly exciting and enjoyable read. * Offshore Magazine * ..for discovering the real Hemingway, for separating the Papa myth from reality makes his book a real treat. * Sailing * ..Schaefer shines in telling about chasing Hemingway and experiencing Havana. * Sailing * Schaefer writes in an entertaining, relaxed manner that makes the pages go by rapidly. * Spinsheet * Dave Schaefer proves himself through meeting difficult challenges and crossing back over the boundary to return home, changed forever. * The Ensign *
