Product description

A selection of true-life dramas that chronicle the perils and misfortunes faced by deep-sea sailing ships of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

From remarkable voyages, mutinies, hoaxes, curiosities and disease, to messages in a bottle, this book has a fund of amazing tales and will engross the reader maritime historian, sailor (whether retired , current or armchair), or anyone with an interest in the sea and tales of adventure.
