Review

Donna Seaman Booklist Druett is as valued for her jaunty storytelling as she is for reclaiming the forgotten lives of seafaring women....Maritime lore has always been rich in romance and suffering; Druett's revelations increase its fascination tenfold. David Hays coauthor of My Old Man and the Sea Joan Druett's She Captains sweeps across the decks as a gale of tales -- saucy and surprising, always seaworthy. A sparkling voyage. Karin Winegar Minneapolis Star Tribune Great reading, especially for those who love tales of risk, glory, gritty adventure, and action-packed history.
