The Unexpected Journey of A Little Wooden BoatBook - 2016
On the island in Denmark where the oldest oak tree in Europe grows, a lone builder nicknamed "the perfectionist" crafted a boat with his hands. In 1936, the boat was finished and her journey began. Seventy years later, in Port Townsend, Washington--just minutes after a near catastrophe was averted in the marina outside her office window--Kaci Cronkhite opened an email. A Danish spidsgatter named Pax was for sale in Victoria, British Columbia. The journey that brought the two together became a quest that connected families in three countries with history that had been lost. What Kaci didn't know--what no one knew--was where and how far Pax had journeyed, what she survived those seven decades, and what those who loved her would always remember.
