Great Sea Stories recounts epic tales of the victims of shipwreck, mutiny and marooning, through history and around the globe, focusing on the age of sail and steam.

This enthralling book captures some of the most exciting and bizarre stories of the sea, encompassing the predations of pirates; the last-resort horrors of cannibalism; encounters with ferocious indigenous tribes; the unleashed madness of psychopaths; and, always, the desperate attempt to survive against all odds.

And of course, behind every tale of tragedy or triumph, lies the eternal mystery and majesty of the merciless, unpredictable ocean.
