Queries prompted a family cruise, which resulted in Charlies Charts of the Inside Passage to British Columbia and Alaska (today called Charlies Charts North to Alaska) and, eventually, Charlies Charts of the U.S. Pacific Coast.

Ocean Passages and Landfalls is a handbook for world cruisers. It provides invaluable passage-planning information for crossing the oceans, with discussions on climates, seasons, oceanography and the merits of different world cruising routes. The heart of the book is an ocean-by-ocean round-up, and at the beginning of each of these sections is a description of routes, followed by information on the countries relevant to these routes. Details of formalities and regulations are then followed by essential information on key harbours and landfalls. This second edition (2009) has been thoroughly revised and enlarged and now features new sections on chosen areas and topics - the Atlantic Circuit or Cruising on Ice, for instance. Here the opportunity has been taken to provide more informal commentary and observations based on first-hand experience. These sections are illustrated by the author's colour photographs, many of which have been taken during the production of this new edition and sent in from far-flung parts of the oceans- Rod Heikell in the South Pacific and the Torres Strait, and Andy O'Grady in Brazil and the high latitudes of Chile. As an up-to-date reference for world cruising this new edition of 'Ocean Passages and Landfalls' sets the benchmark as both a practical reference and also as a book for dreamers.

An indispensable companion for an incredible journey, newly updated and in color The Inside Passage is something of a holy grail for contemporary sea kayakers. It is without question the most scenic and challenging paddling trip in North America. Revised with route updates, map improvements, and stunning color photography, Kayaking the Inside Passage will aid kayakers in planning paddling trips on the rugged Pacific artery that runs along the western edge of North America. Robert Miller has traversed these waters for decades and created this inimitable guide to kayaking the entire 1,300- mile length of the Inside Passage along one select route with some alternate variations. No other paddling guide covers the entire length of the Inside Passage. Miller includes complete historical and natural background, along with proficiency and equipment recommendations. Paddlers will get the most out of their experience with the advice and hard- won insight of a seasoned veteran.
