The trials of life at sea - an unexpected storm, a hull-crushing ice floe, capture by pirates, or a grounding on a forbidden reef - have long drawn readers of all ages and tastes to the best in vicarious travel and just plain good, entertaining reading. Whether it's the understated Shackleton's account of perhaps the most arduous and potentially lethal small-boat journey ever undertaken; or first mate Owen Chase's frightening description of watching helplessly as his ship, the New England whaler Essex, is rammed and sunk by an angry whale thousands of miles from land; or Slocum's depiction of a perfect day alone at sea, these stories entertain and inform.
