KIRKUS REVIEW

The mother of Eric Linklater writes of sea travel in the 1800's as she experienced it on sailing ships with her captain father. Life at sea, receptions in port, the food they ate, the amusements, the kind treatment she had from sailors, the stories of the men themselves, and the histories of her father's ships. Nice reading, with a charm and flavor reminiscent of the Vivian Hughes' books, with their so-so -- different background. The sea from a woman's viewpoint.
