KIRKUS REVIEW

....contains a full cargo of material collected by a seaworthy mind, enough to give many pleasurable reading hours. Fiction and non-fiction, the stories have been arranged in appropriate categories- ""Small Boat Voyages, ""The Days of Sail"", ""Pirates"", ""Exploration and Adventure"", ""Holidays Aflont"", and ""Enterprise and Valour"". Within each group, selections from as widely varying sources as Richard Dana, James Dugan's The Great Iron Ship, and Joshua Slocum will enrich both reading and physical experience.
