This beautiful tribute to some of the world's most stunning and savage seas, sailors and explorers provides accounts of some of the greatest feats of human endurance, fascinating tales and intriguing facts about some of Earth's most interesting and unpredictable waters, enabling you to experience the majesty and grandeur of the seas and the terrifying challenges they faced.
