KIRKUS REVIEW

True stories about ships with unusual histories, told without unusual buoyancy. Several ended as drifters (the Baychimo, the Polly), some defied known standards (Brunel's Great Eastern; the floating case for Cleopatra's Needle), others showed neversay-die resilience, often aided by equally enduring skippers and crews. No special cargo, limited as ballast.
