Publisher Description:
Shows kids what life was like for the greenhands, old salts, and captains on the high seas during the great age of sail in the 19th century. This book shows that kids who learned how to walk at sea often found it difficult to walk on dry land. It begins with the China Tea trade in the 18th century and ends with the last whaler leaving New Bedford.
