KIRKUS REVIEW

Short stories and excerpts from books, brought together to make one of the best collections of sea stories I have seen. This is Wyeth in a new role, and he has chosen well, selecting from the classics (yes, even Homer), on down to virtually the present. There is adventure, there is autobiography, there is straight fiction and there is some frankly descriptive material. If you wanted to tie it in with other reading to which it should serve as introduction, glance through the list of famous sources, such as Two Years Before the Mast, Midshipman Easy, Robinson Crusoe, Drums, Count of Monte Cristo, Sea Wolf, Jim Davis, Moby Dick, Kidnapped, 20,000 League Under the Sea, and others of their ilk.
