5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't Put it down, 6 Nov 2010
This is a book that is so compelling to read you don't want to put it down! It is so stuffed with facts it is almost an encyclopaedia of British maritime activities in the 16 to 18 hundreds. If it were a jam it would have 140g of fruit per 100 grams of it! Packed with nautical nuances and insights....pure delight to anyone interested in how Britain became the sea lords of that era or anyone interested in the sea, Square Riggers and sailing in general.
Go on buy it. It's not cheap but it more than makes up for it's price. A gem!
