5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful, 6 Sep 2010

This review is from: Topsail and Battleaxe: A Voyage in the Wake of the Vikings (Hardcover)
Tom Cunliffe interleaves the account of his sailing with a small crew from Norway to Canada on board a pilot cutter with tales of the Vikings who have taken that route on their vessels a thousand years before. The technicalities of sailing might annoy those who don't sail, but the Viking tales are entertaining, as well as tales of Tom and his crew meeting the west coast Norwegian. Respect that the sailor must have for the sea pervades the writing. It is a pity the first hard cover edition is out of print, because it is quite a beautiful book.
