    Sure is and there are a number of other books, all worth looking at. He got a 
    university grant to study traditional Polynesian navigation, eventually 
    writing a thesis that evolved into the books. There are always resourceful 
    souls who invent all sorts of ways of making a living out of sailing, this 
    was a particularly elegant solution to the problem, and he found others - in 
    the
    Antarctic, for example.

    the death of David Lewis reminded me of a book I had called "We the 
    Navigators"  by David Lewis.  Not sure if it is the same guy, but it seems 
    that it must be.  This is a great book, a definitive and thorough study of 
    ancient Polynesian navigation.  University of Hawaii press 1972, 1973.  ISBN
