About this product
- DescriptionBenjamin Lundy crossed oceans under sail in the late nineteenth century and over one hundred years later Derek Lundy, his great-great nephew, has re-created that journey. In The Way of a Ship he places Benjamin on board the Beara Head with a community of fellow seamen as they perform the exhausting and dangerous work of sailing a square-rigger across the Atlantic and round Cape Horn. Derek Lundy adorns his story of an extraordinary journey with a profound kwledge of the sea and sailing, and reminds us that the ocean voyage under sail is an overarching metaphor for life itself.
- Author BiographyDerek Lundy is an experienced amateur sailor. A lawyer by training and a writer by profession, he has published four books, including the international bestseller Godforsaken Sea: Racing the World's Most Dangerous Waters. He lives in Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.
