On January 11th, 2007, Andrew McCauley set off from Tasmania in a sea kayak, aiming to be the first person to paddle the 1600 kilometres to New Zealand. A month later, New Zealand authorities received a garbled distress call from him. His kayak was spotted drifting and waterlogged just 80 kilometres from the New Zealand coast. His body was never found.
Vicki McAuley, Andrew's wife and the mother of his young child, has written an extraordinary book about her husband and his final voyage. It is a love story, an adventure story and a meditation on what it is to feel most alive, even when so brazenly tempting death. Not since 'Into Thin Air' have we come closer to understanding the adrenaline rush of high adventure, and its tragic consequences.
