Windjamming to China

R$21,41

Descrição

Synopsis:

Windjamming to China sails on the fringes of history. It covers the first half of the twentieth century, a time when almost all wind-driven vessels of the sailing age had been discarded, replaced by steam and steel.

In the larger sense, the book is about the American sailor, a folk character and even a hero, who speaks through the mists of 200 years of history, shouting for recognition. The American sailor was born on the icy shores of Plymouth, he was rocked upon the waves of the Atlantic, and he cut his teeth on New England codfish. He built his muscles at the halyards of New Bedford whalers, and gained his sea legs atop the mizzen of Yankee Clippers.

A memoir, this wonderfully told story is written in the voice of a fifteen-year-old boy, covering his experiences and the colorful characters he meets sailing the North Pacific in the 1930s.

Sailing is a proud tradition, and Windjamming to China evokes that tradition so it will never be forgotten.

About the Author:

Gustav Tjgaard has always loved literature, having read Cervantes'apos; Don Quixote for the fourth time as a ten-year old. At age 85, he views the sailor as a legitimate folk hero. Originally from Decatur Island, Washington, he now lives in Pacifica, California, and has already written his next five books.
