Notes by the Way in a Sailor's Life - Captain Arthur E. Knights

Stories about the Sea from a ship's Captain. These stories highlight the perils of going by sea. The author had some voyages that were less than desirable. He comments how travel by sea is fine, and then gives stories about trips that make you think otherwise. This is my 23rd Project Guttenberg title.
