The book description states that: “This is the fascinating true story of seagoing New England families and the packets, East Indiamen and swift clipper ships on which they journeyed to distant ports. The children who were lucky enough to sail with their parents had the ocean for their homes and the whole world for their geography books. Their mothers taught them to read and write, the first mates taught them navigation and the sea itself, with the storms and icebergs and dangerous shoals, taught them courage and endurance. As fresh and salty as an ocean breeze, as spicy as the ginger, cloves and fragrant sandalwood which sometimes constituted part of the cargo, this distinguished book captures some of America’s proudest moments.”
