"Large, useful glossary of nautical terms. (Nonfiction. 12+)"
Twenty-two classic stories, poems, and reminiscences celebrating the sea's danger and grandeur, anchored by selections as familiar as Matthew Arnold's ``Dover Beach'' and Stephen Crane's ``Open Boat,'' as diverse as Belloc's account of the destruction of the Spanish Armada and Heyerdahl's encounters with sharks while floating across the Pacific on Kon-Tiki, as exciting as Joshua Slocum's solo battle with wind and wave off Cape Horn.
