The Journey of the Little Red Boat is based on an actual incident in which a little red boat broke away from its mooring, floated down the tidal Medomak River near the coast of Maine, and was recovered by the author near the village of Medomak. From its happy home, the little red boat is driven by rain, wind and tide on a journey down river. It has several emotional encounters with rocks, sailboats, a seal and cormorant birds. Finally the little red boat drifts into a cove where it is discovered and cared for by a little girl and her grandparents and finds a happy home once again.
