From the first woman to row solo across the Atlantic and to ski over land to the South Pole, comes a true memoir of an explorer who maps her own world with rare emotional honesty.
From the Publisher:
Documents the author's efforts to become the first woman to row solo across the Atlantic, describing the hurricane season that challenged her efforts, the love affair that inspired her subsequent achievements, and the ways in which she learned to embrace her humanity.
Annotation:
In 1998, Toni McClure was in need of some inner peace, so she decided to take an idyllic trip in her rowboat--across the Atlantic Ocean. Sadly, McClure embarked on her quest for enduring fame as an endurance rower during what turned out to be the worst hurricane season in the history of the North Atlantic. After having to call in a request to be rescued, she felt like a failure, but a pair of men quickly upended that perspective. She fell in love and learned that it often helps to have a partner to battle life's storms, and she went to work for Muhammad Ali, who taught her never to surrender to her doubts. With renewed spirit, she set out once again to conquer an ocean, with similar results, but a very different outcome.

Praise

"Nearly ten years after the conclusion of her groundbreaking journey, McClure offers her reflections in contemplative, honest language, revealing her meaningful road to self-discovery." (starred review) 03/15/2009

"No question about it: A PEARL IN THE STORM is a rip-roaring adventure tale. But woven into its fabric, in alternating chunks of narrative, is another story: the author's effort to understand her life on land..." - Suki Casanave 04/29/2009
