Promotional Information

Behind every great sea story there is a real-life adventure that inspired it, and this book shines a new light on some of our best-loved maritime authors - from Robert Louis Stevenson to Jack London, Hemingway, Masefield and Conrad - reflecting the dangerous, exciting and often eccentric escapades that fuelled their writing.

About the Author

Sam Jefferson is a journalist and maritime historian, and is one of the leading authorities on the clipper ship era. He is a former Deputy Editor of Sailing Today, and writes regularly for Classic Boat, Sailing Today and Traditional Boats and Tall Ships. He is the author of Clipper Ships and the Golden Age of Sail, published by Adlard Coles Nautical.

Reviews

Jefferson is an entertaining storyteller in his own right, which directs the book's scope towards a continuation of the tradition of 'spinning yarns' that he admires in his subjects. * Sea History magazine (US) * Direct and punchy prose cuts to the heart of each subject and opens a window into the reality behind these famous works of fiction. * Soundings (US) * The true adventures of some of these writers were often more exciting than the fiction. * Daily Mail *
