Shapes on the Wind is the autobiography of David Lewis, one of the world's old sea salts, sailors and adventurers.An uncompromising participator in the varieties and vagaries of active life, he has ventured onto sea, land and ice in every corner of the globe, investigating and testing the elements — and himself—for emotional and aesthetic potential.This account builds up a comprehensive portrait of a most unusual person in our present culture, a person dedicated to experiencing life outside the usual value systems of money, material possessions and conventional morality. His mistakes and misjudgments are many and freely admitted, yet we learn to tolerate and understand them as we move through his life story, realising that the gains could not have been achieved without some error.He is truly one of the old sea salts, an old man of the sea and younger sailors, pioneers and expeditioners should all know his story.
