Description: The Greatest Sailing Stories Ever Told Twenty-seven Unforgettable Stories Edited by Christopher Caswell For thousands of years, man has sailed into battle, sailed for rumored wealth, and sailed for pure adventure. And for nearly as long, stories about the sea have entertained, intrigued, and inspired readers. The Greatest Sailing Stories Ever Told brings together some of the most compelling writing of the millennium. Here is Peter Goss's wrenching narrative of incredible courage in the world's most desolate ocean; Ernest Shackleton's understated and awesome account of one of the most daring small-boat journeys ever taken, where failure meant certain death for his long-suffering crew. But sailing is much more than headlong dashes into roaring seas. You'll also find William F. Buckley, Jr. on idyllic cruising; James Thurber on the arcane and often impenetrable language of sailors; the legendary Joshua Slocum on sailing along around the world.The Greatest Sailing Stories Ever told is a treasure trove: tears, adrenaline, laughter, and adventure abound. With contributions from: James ThurberWilliam F. Buckley, Jr.Ann DavisonSterling HaydenErnest ShackletonTristan JonesSamuel Eliot MorrisonJoshua SlocumE.B. WhiteC.S. ForesterCleveland AmoryWeston MartyrPeter GossDavid Kasanof
