The Boatman has travelled these waters before. He has always known commerce with the tribe upriver is perilous, but it is profitable enough to justify the risk. As they draw near the roughly-hewn huts of the village, he urges his companion to be careful. Say nothing. Don’t look at their women. Let him do all the talking.

A quick trade and then head back downriver to the ship with goods to sell.

This time, though, something goes wrong. So suddenly that the Boatman cannot fathom why, he finds himself without a crew and without cargo, sailing away from disaster looking for something more, for a new course and purpose. In one port, wealthy clients tempt him with a prosperous life of service. In another, an inviting woman offers him a home.

But past the comforts of wealth and the allure of a warm bed, the sea still calls him—beckoning him to the frozen ends of the world.
