A true story of the battered life of a foremast crewman, Two Years Before the Mast is Richard Henry Dana''s classic travel narrative, which inspired canonical works such as Moby Dick and Sailing Alone Around the World. As Rod Scher follows Dana (the Harvard dropout-turned-sailor) on his voyages around North America, he annotates Dana''s tale with critiques, compliments, tie-ins to today, and little-known facts about both the book and the milieu of Dana''s time.
Rod Scher received his M.Ed from the University of Oregon. A longtime boating enthusiast, writer, and former English teacher, he is an editor for Smart Computing Magazine. He lives in Lincoln, Nebraska.
