This book has probably infected more young men with sea fever than any other volume ever written. In the years after its publication in 1840, however, the novel had a less romantic influence: its realistic portrayal of the common sailor's dismal treatment at sea awakened contemporary social conscience and led to maritime reform.

Richard Henry Dana (for whom Dana Point in California is named) shipped from Boston as an ordinary seaman on the vessel "Pilgrim" in 1834. He sailed 'round the Horn to California where he remained for a year, most of the time collecting hides from seaside ranches.
