The Navigators

Among the remote South Pacific Islands, Mau Piailug guides his men aboard their hand-hewn sailing canoes on long ocean passages. Without instruments or charts, he relies solely on his intricate knowledge of the sea and sky: of swells and currents, winds and weather, stars and the natural signs of birds and fish. Mau and a handful of other men may be the last keepers of the ancient secrets of Polynesian navigation. (Video: $29.95; DVD: $34.95)
