Come aboard the Morag Anne.
Creekstone Press invites you to share in a story of maritime adventure as told in Oar & Sail: An Odyssey of the West Coast.
At 66, Dr. Ken Leighton, former head of anaesthesia at the University of British Columbia Hospital, set off from Vancouver’s Jericho Beach in a custom-built, open rowing boat. Two years and a full logbook later, with calloused hands and a joyful heart, he docked the Morag Anne in Prince Rupert, 500 miles north of his launching point.
Join Dr. Leighton as he melds a love of language, Gaelic wit, and the sea in a story set on one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world.
The evocative illustrations were drawn for Oar & Sail by Dr. Roderick Leighton, Ken Leighton’s son. The maps were drawn by Anne Maclean.
