Great American Sailing Stories : Lyons Press Classics Paperback / softback


Few people would want to test their mettle in an ice-encrusted boat with an Arctic explorer, sail the Straits of Magellan with Joshua Slocum, or watch with Owen Chase as an angry whale sends his ship to the bottom, thousands of miles from the nearest land.

But it's quite another thing to read these true accounts while settled into a favorite chair. Rich in drama and history, Great American Sailing Stories will entertain, inform, and inspire-these are enduring stories that have attracted generations of readers.
