Westward Bound in The Schooner Yankee

Lest us forget not some of the older books that also have great value and appeal. I am currently in the middle of Westward Bound in The Schooner Yankee by Captain and Mrs. Irving Johnson. A true time capsule. The first edition is copyrighted in 1936 by W.W.Norton Company, NY NY. If you care to look for a copy.

Schooner Fred has a fascinating library. Any favorites hidden there?

Down to the Sea, by Joseph E. Garland

When Gordon Thomas retired from writing, his magnificent collection, some 3,500 photographs of Gloucester schooners and waterfront scenes, was acquired by the Cape Ann Historical Association. In 1983, Gordon's friend Joe Garland, drawing from this treasure trove, published "Down to the Sea, the Fishing Schooners of Gloucester." It is beautifully written and illustrated, capturing the feel of an era when Gloucester was truly the schooner capital of the world.
