    Another great book re polynesian sailing/navigation
    From: Paul Saffo

    Another great book is Ben Finney's 1994 book, "Voyage of Rediscovery:
    A Cultural Odyssey through Polynesia." It details several long voyages
    by the Hokule'a and goes into considerable detail on the navigation
    problems.  The central chapters are written chronologically (almost a
    log style) and include quite a few figures showing courses, dr
    positions, etc.  It is thus a nice compliment to other books that
    describe Pacific ethno-navigation systems generally.
      I have read nearly every English language book on the subject from
    Makemson onwards, and "voyage" definitely is  an important
    contribution to the literature, and a darn good read besides.
