KIRKUS REVIEW

Third in the author's Oceans of the World series, this considers the smallest of the seven oceans. Of primary importance is the Gulf Stream. Early sailors, the Phoenicians, Vikings and Portuguese, are covered as well as the opening of the new world and early colonization. Compact coverage of shipping chronicles, adventure, advances in navigation and naval architecture.
