Hurricane Island - The Outward Bound Years

This book tells of the creation - starting in 1964 - of the only Outward Bound sea school in the United States, on Hurricane Island, ten miles off the coast in Penobscot Bay, Maine.  

Susan St. John, a HIOBS instructor herself for 30 years, took nine years to gather the 400 color photographs included in the book and the stories of 100 staff members. The stories, about the creation of experiential education on an island and in “those funny little boats,” include carrier pigeons and a non-fatal strike by lightning. All the stories are liberally doused with a sense of service, salt water and the smell of spruce on Hurricane and in the magnificent archipelago of Midcoast Maine.
