The Sea Called
6 January 2018 | by bjbrock99See all my reviews

COYOTE is a truly riveting account of adventurer Mike Plant's personal journey to challenge the open sea alone aboard his beloved sailboat, The Coyote. Through vintage video and personal interviews of friends and family, the story of his struggles as well as determination is both inspiring and baffling.
