American transatlantic rower

Tori Murden's list of firsts is remarkably disparate, involving unprecedented accomplishments in transatlantic rowing, mountain climbing and cross country skiing. In 1988, she became the first woman and first American to reach the top of Antarctica's Lewis Nunatuk Summit. The following year, she became the first woman and first American to ski to the geographic South Pole. A decade later, in an astonishing three-month quest, she became the first woman and first American to row across the Atlantic Ocean singlehandedly. "It is my own particular flaw," Murden once said, "that I am best able to find what it means to be a human being when I'm off alone in some hostile place."

Tori came and spoke to the faculty and staff at my college today and she did finish her book. It's called "A Pearl in the Storm". It's not available until April but you can pre-order it on Amazon.

Im part of the team that braught the American Pearl home from Miami. It was a great honor to have been just a small part of the experience of Tori and Pearl. Her husband is a great person as well.I would like to know if Tori ever finised her book.And if so what the name of it is. Thank you
