Two Years Before the Mast

by Richard Henry Dana

I first read this book 15 years ago. Since then I have spent many wonderful weekends/weeks sailing. This book is a TRUE story of sailing the seas and life on board a ship. From sewing their own cloths, sails, working the hemp rope. A must for sailors, those that might wish to try sailing and even those that are land bound.

Today, as our Author of the Day, Yates talks about how he manages to describe the history in his books with such extraordinary accuracy, how his own experiences inspired the Billy Battles books and gives some sound writing advice to any aspiring writers out there.
