Compelling true-life stories about mariners' dreadful experiences at sea during the heyday of deep-sea commercial sail. Recounted mainly as original narratives compiled from the Casualties columns and pages of Lloyd's List. A wealth of fascinating topics including strandings, mutiny, murder, messages in a bottle and seaquakes.
One of the most celebrated books of the year: a vivid journey through the haunted borderlands that once made up the easternmost stretch of the old Iron Curtain and today mark the outer reaches of Europe
