WHITE SAILS SHAKING by Ira Henry- Ed. Freeman


Email this review


A collection of true salt water tales, excerpted from books, magazines, that display not only maritime adventures but the temper and quality of the men who face the sea in sailing craft the world over. Chosen for their variety, these range from solo encounters with all sorts of traveling conditions, to accounts of plushlined trips, from sickness an route to the Blandings-like building of a dream boat, from tragedies barely averted to a report from the classic Slocum. Cape Horn, North, South, East and West, a lady skipper (involuntarily), an Irish blockade running, sharks, the first race to America's cup -- as you can see more than enough for the avowed students of marine escapology.
