KIRKUS REVIEW

A superior collection of excerpts, short stories and selections from authentically backgrounded accounts of the sea, which spotlight man's endless struggle against it, this is for all salt water fans. A congenial companion that chronicles all activities,- exploration, mutiny, wrecks and rescues, trade, racing, cruising, battle, pleasures and dangers -- in fiction and personal letters and accounts. The order is from current to past -- Michener, Heggen, Ellsberg, Loomis, Gilpatric, Tomlinson, Faulkner, Slocum, Masefield, Melville, Conrad, Dana, Forester, Bligh, Stevenson, Columbus and Virgil and others- and the editor's practiced hand introduces each inclusion with a paragraph that will provoke interest in the whole book.
