Reviews
Praise for Graveyard of the Pacific: "Vividly
evoking Sullivan's deep fascination with the Pacific Northwest and thirst for
friendship and adventure, this is a thrill ride." -Publishers Weekly"A
riveting story of maritime tragedies and a personal passage... It is Sullivan's
gripping, vividly detailed accounts of nautical disasters at the Columbia Bar
that make the book such an achievement... The author's personal story--from
growing up with an abusive father to his 2021 attempt to cross the Bar by
trimaran--courses through the book like an intermittent current... A strikingly rendered
tale of the hard and lasting costs of courage." --Kirkus (starred review)"The point where the Columbia River spills into the Pacific
Ocean has long been known as the 'Graveyard of the Pacific' for all the deadly
shipwrecks that have occurred there over the centuries... Sullivan challenges
himself to traverse these turbid waters in a fragile trimaran... Defying nature's
fury, Sullivan also faces down his own demons... Ultimately, the struggle to cross
both physical and emotional bars defines for Sullivan manhood in the
contemporary world." - Booklist
