From the back –
Here are the stories, the legends, the tales which, in the oral tradition form the sealore of the folk who have lived by and upon the great waters for generations. They are the fishermen of Newfoundland and the Maritime Provinces; the coastal people of Maine and the Massachusetts capes and the Chesapeake; the black mariners of the British West Indies with their touches of African survival; and the seafaring people of the harsh and jagged shores of Ireland and Scotland. This is a book of the world’s plain people, their vicissitudes and occasional successes in their ceaseless struggles with the unrelenting sea.
