Most of this book was written on board a 37 foot Chesapeake Bay ketch anchored offshore
Key Largo Florida in Largo Sound during the 80's.

Built by Lawson Tyler of Smith Island in '63 out of cypress, oak and iron, FREYA had her mast installed at
Annapolis Maryland in '65 and motor-sailed for a 40 day voyage down the Intercoastal Waterway to the Florida Keys.

Because of this boat and its capacity to provide a simple lifestyle that gave time for study,
this book became a reality.

The Version 1 series became available on 8/8/88 and Version 2 in the early Fall of '94.

In the Spring of '97 the SPIRIT OF ATLANTIS website was created at the CompuServe Homepage area
and now at the spiritofatlantis.com website.
