Description
When the sea's gone calm and the sails lie limp, that's the time to collect your rum ration, find a dry berth, and open up this witty and intriguing collection of 64 nautical yarns. Gregory Dill chronicles such episodes as the short, bloody, and ultimately pointless 1813 sea duel between the U.S. frigate Chesapeake and His Majesty's Ship Shannon; the bizarre tale of Captain John Paul Jones's 1779 raid on a Scottish coastal estate, where he meant to kidnap Lord Selkirk and instead was invited to dinner by Lady Selkirk; and the hopelessly quixotic 1942 anti-submarine patrols of Ernest Hemingway in his fishing boat Pilar.
