''A Tale of High Adventure at Sea in One of the Least Known Parts of the World.'' Hal and Margaret Roth, veteran sailors, set out to sail their thirty-five foot yacht, Whisper, through and around a little known archipelago on the southwest coast of South America and thence around that greatest challenge of all, Cape Horn. After an 8,000 mile voyage from California, during which they explored a vast archipelago, deep fjords between high mountains, and glaciers, they arrived at the bottom of the world. They anchored one night in a small bay poised for the passage around the Horn. There, just twenty-four miles from the Horn, they were struck by a violent storm and wrecked on a desolate, rocky shore. They survived for nine days until a Chilean navy patrol ship spotted their signals and took them off. They came back, however, salvaged Whisper, and started out again.
