About this title


Adventure-filled journals of FDR's seafaring relative.

From the Back Cover:

in 1817, Amasa Delano, American merchant and seafarer, published his Narrative of three extraordinary trading voyages. This account, edited by his descendant Eleanor Roosevelt Seagraves and supplemented with archival illustrations and new maps, is a superbly readable chronicle of American enterprise and adventure.

"Captain Delano's Voyages provide a vivid record of early American seafaring, and a no less vivid self-portrait of an American seafarer entirely free of the self-justifying piety of his age. For better and for worse, along the coasts of five continents and among scores of islands in between, through shipwreck and combat and the capture of a slave ship, Amasa Delano reported exactly what he saw and heard and felt. The result is priceless." -Geoffrey C. Ward, author of Before The Trumpet and A First-Class Temperament; co-author of The Civil War

Amasa Delano (1763-1823) was a descendant of the shipbuilding Delanos of Duxbury, Massachusetts, a family that was engaged in Far Eastern trade for several generations and whose members included forebears of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Eleanor Roosevelt Seagraves has been a librarian, educator, bibliographer, and researcher in the humanities.

William T. La Moy is director of the James Duncan Phillips Library of the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Massachusetts, and editor, Peabody Essex Museum Collections.
