Diana Brown (Author), William Wilkes Morris (Author), Willam Mann (Author), Colin Brown (Author) & 1 more. I very much liked this book. It is the story of a Nantucket whaler named Hero, and a British privateer named the Swallow.
Diana Brown (Author), William Wilkes Morris (Author), Willam Mann (Author), Colin Brown (Author) & 1 more. Their work commences with two journals, one written by the Hero's first mate; and the other written the Swallow's carpenter. Using American, British and French records of almost two centuries they have recreated the period of sail.
They have very successfully woven a factual history of the events of these two ships, and the unique circumstances of the ships, and their crews
275 pp. Minor soiling to wrappers. They have very successfully woven a factual history of the events of these two ships, and the unique circumstances of the ships, and their crews. There are several twists and turns in the story; making it all the more interesting. In terms of other writings this work is a unique achievement. The book will appeal to anyone interested in the early period of whaling history, or to those who are fascinated by an era long since superseded by the modern era of shipping and modern navies.
British-born Diana Brown has lived and worked throughout Europe and the Far East. Ms. Brown, a librarian, eventually settled in San Jose, California, with her husband and two daughters, Pamela and Clarissa, named after Samuel Richardson's heroines. Books by Diana Brown.
