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.
