The Annotated Two Years Before the Mast, Hardback Book

The Annotated Two Years Before the Mast Hardback


Two Years Before the Mast is a classic travel narrative which inspired canonical works like Moby Dick and Sailing Alone Around the World.

As he follows Richard Henry Dana (a Harvard dropout-turned-sailor) on his voyages around North America (encountering racial injustices and struggling through the battered life of a foremast crewman), Rod Scher annotates his tale with critiques, compliments, tie-ins to today, and little-known facts about both the book and the milieu of Dana's time.
