"It was in 1953 that Ann Davison made a bit of history by being the first woman to sail th e Atlantic single-handed - a feat she recorded in her best-selling My Ship is so Small. Having arrived in America she decided to live there for a time- 'settle down' would never be the term to use for her - and before long s he wondered what should be her next adventuture. As far back as 1954 the seeds were sown in her mind of a Grand Stateside Tour: to sail from Miami to Miami; via Atlantic Seabooard to New York; by the River Hudson and.d canalsto Lake Ontario and Canada; more canals and great lakes to Chicago; by the great Rivers Illinois and Mississippi to New Orleans and the Gulf of Mexic o; across the Gulf to the west coast of Florida; and home to Miaiami. But things got in the way: a marriage which 'didn't take and was, so to speak, struck off the rolls'; an illness, 'It was cancer, the doctor said, in a roundabout way, and I vvould have to have an operation ...'; another marriage,but this didn't get in the way (apart irom the time she spent trying to re member whether his name was Bert Billheimer or Bill Bertheimer), and plans for the Grand Tour began to develop. Ann was to go alone - 'I can't take that kind of time off', said Bert, adding with a grin 'besides she won't let me - her writing contracts say she has to go alone. They don't want a man. along. Spoil the story.' Without admitting that he might have spoilt it, itis our opinion that Ann's account of her solo tro trip in her 17-foot outb oard cruiser Gemini, makes delightfully enthralling reading." (from the dj). Arranged in five parts: I. Atlantic Seaboard; II. Canals; III. Lakes; IV.Rivers; V. Gulf. Very good in lightly soiled and nicked, spine-sunned but unpriceclipped dustjacket.

"New Brunswick Sea Stories by Dorothy Dearborn goes from miracles to mayhem as the author presents story after story reflecting the times and traditions of two centuries of shipbuilding and shipping in New Brunswick. 'From the Bay of Chaleur through the Gulf of St. Lawrence and into the Bay of Fundy, our waterways are filled withuntold stories. Many of those stories are under the sea, in the more than 1,900 shipwrecks resting in their watery graves.' Phantom ships, sea monsters, mutiny, murder find their places beside stories of those Iron Men of the sea who sailed their ships around the world time and time again in the most dangerous circumstances. Heroism has its place here as well, in truth the stories in this book reflect the good and the bad that follows us throughlife ... wherever we are." - from rear cover.

"If the Wisconsin could tell its own great story, it could not do so with more warmth, knowledge, and enthusiasm than August Derleth has done here. "Always one of the most important passages between the Great Lakes and the Mississippi, the Wisconsin has known explorers, settlers, traders and empire builders, bitter fights and great accomplishments. Its history has been turbulent and exciting, different from that of other parts of the country, but American to the core. "Back and forth over the Wisconsin went Astor's men tobuild the fabulous fur trade, and later the Wisconsin carried the timber t hat built the great western states. Along the vast movements of history that have marched along its banks the river has seen men who have had their share in shaping the mind of the United States. "Physically, August Derleth is a big man, and he has explored the reaches of the Wisconsin by canoe and on foot. He knows it as few men know any river; and he writes as you would expect him to, with strength and vigor. The Wisconsin is a hisky book." from the dj [not present with this copy]. Contents: Part I.

(4),[v]-viii,[1]-312. 8vo, navy blue cloth with gilt floral decoration to front board and spine, gilt titles to spine."I love to turn my back upon the close streets of towns, to avoid even the dusty highways, and to explore the narrow tracks among the golden-blossoming furze and broom of purple-flowering heath, of broad commons, -- to ramble through green lands, 'fringed with the feathery fern', and fragrant with the scent of wild flowers, -- to thread the half-hidden paths through woods, where furred or feathered fellow-creatures run or fly infreedom, and the brick-and-mortar world is quite shut out, -- to wander by the banks of rivers, far from towns, with the sound of water rushing over a distant weir to lure me on, -- to follow the windings of a rocky coast, where a new view is discovered as each bold point is rounded, and the receding tide forms little pools, in which tiny crabs lurk, and narrow channels between seaweed-festooned rocks. It was my desire, therefore, to make a pedestrian tour through portions of the beautiful country of Kent; and my admiratino of the genius of one of the greatest novelists of any age led me to suggesst a visit to the numerous localities associated with incidents in Dickens's inimitable and immortal works." - from pp. 3-4. Ffep missing, inner hinges tender with some wear to outer hinges, discolouration to top third of front board (likely from a removed label), some light fraying so spine ends and extremities, else good.
