"This marvellous book should be hailed as an instant classic." —— David McCullough
For young men more than a century ago, "going to sea" was as much a rite of passage as making a grand tour of Europe. Sea Struck brings alive the final decades of square—rigged sail through the accounts of voyages made on three ships by three young men from Massachusetts. There is plenty of adventure here— storms, men overboard, discipline that bordered on brutality, and exotic ports. There is also a fascinating immersion in the lore of the sea and sail and the global web of connections in the New England maritime community.

W. H. "BILL" BUNTING shipped as galley boy aboard the brigantine Yankee at age 13 and later completed a 25,000—mile world voyage as first mate of a 132—foot barkentine.
