'Recollections of a Sea Wanderer's Life: An Autobiography of an Old-time Seaman...' by George Davis

Don't be put off by the book's lengthy title: 'Recollections of a Sea Wanderer's Life: An Autobiography of an Old-time Seaman Who has Sailed in Almost Every Capacity Before and Abaft the Mast, in Nearly Every Quarter of the Globe, and Under the Flags of Four of the Principal Maritime Nations'. This autobiography is worth reading from beginning to end. It is not only about the life of an old salt but about a bygone age -- when, as author George Davis puts it in his Dedication, "wooden ships were manned and sailed by MEN of iron, and not as now, when iron ships are run by wooden men". Numerous illustrations and a glossary of nautical terms add richness to what is an engaging narrative. (27.6 MiB, PDF, 432 pages)
