Au­thor Paul Rodgers made his last sin­gle-handed voy­age after nearly 20 years spent cross­ing the world’s oceans alone. In To Pur­ga­tory, Rodgers takes us on his jour­ney from Venezuela to Cape Town, South Africa, via the Caribbean is­lands and St. He­lena Is­land. He de­scribes the storms, seas, wildlife and peo­ple he en­coun­ters along the way. The story takes an abrupt turn when Rodgers be­comes mixed up in one of the largest drug busts in Bri­tish his­tory. He is ar­rested and sent to prison after be­ing ac­cused of run­ning a traf­fick­ing ring that used small, ocean­go­ing ves­sels to smug­gle drugs into the United King­dom. Rodgers main­tains his in­no­cence. (Olympia Pub­lish­ers, $11)
