Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Joseph Schull, a prolific historian and playwright, wrote this volume as part of the Great Stories Of Canada series. He recounted prominent incidents in the golden age of Canadian wooden ship building and the sailors who sailed them. Schull wrote in a colloquial style that captured what it must have been like to ship out to sea, to round Cape Horn, to master the wind and the waves or perish trying.
