About the book

Used book. Paperback. Excellent condition.

 

Ships and Men is an anthology from the classic writings of Captain john P. Parker. The book features Cape Breton Island’s rich history of wooden shipbuilding, and of men who plied the world’s oceans under sail. It includes Parker’s story of the life and death of the deep-sea schooner St. Clair Theriault – his personal experience as an extraordinarily unsuccessful shipowner. A joy to read, Ships and Men is a lasting portrait of Capt. Parker’s passion and of Cape Breton’s seafaring heritage.
