Westward Beyond the Horizon
In this last book of the series, Chowder first finds herself in Australia, a continent full of crocodiles, kangaroos, and aborigines. Over the remaining years of this grand voyage, Chowder, Captain Lee, and mate Sheila first plot a course through the islands of Indonesia to the exotic countries of Malaysia and Thailand. Eventually they sail across the Indian Ocean to South Africa and further beyond into the South Atlantic to Brazil and the Caribbean Sea, before making the last crossings via Bermuda to their new home on the downeast coast of Maine.
During this time, Chowder reveals her experiences with alligators, prancing dolphins, powerful lightning storms, pirates, Komodo dragons, water spouts, large rolling seas, boa constrictors, dancing elephants, and spouting whales. In addition, she shares more stories about unusual glowing seas, bad storms, coral reefs, manta rays, lemurs, Zulu dancers, jungle safaris, exotic religious temples, and unusual indigenous ceremonies. Her life would never be the same!
