In this welcome newcollection, he continues his explorations, offering another selection of c lassic tales by Frederick William Wallace, Archibald MacMechan, Theodore Goodridge Roberts, Arthur Hunt Chute, and other neglected masters of the sea story. Whether portraying the everyday struggles of fishermen and other Atlantic mariners, or more extraordinary events such as disasters at sea, these authors all brought to their writing a striking immediacy that was often based on first-hand experiences. Their memorable stories capture the drama and adventure of seafaring life in the Atlantic region during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries." - from rear cover.
