Few men have lived a life of such challenge and adventure as Ernest K. Gann. Most of all, this is the story of Gann's most beloved vessels, his seventeen sirens, from the beautiful 117-ton brigantine Albatros to the incredible Butterfly - hardly more than a raft with patchwork sails - and the diminutive and flawless Thetis, who could charm even porpoises out of the sea. Filled with moments of both drama and reflective calm, Gann's ode to his seventeen sirens reveals the true romantic within every sailor.
