About this title


A marvelously detailed and illustrated book about the wonderfully-named Glory of the Seas -- built in 1869, the exciting grain runs between Sydney and San Francisco, bucking dirty weather off Cape Horn, plying the Atlantic to England; the men who sailed her, owners, brokers, charterers. Good human interest stories.

About the Author:

Michael Mjelde has made the study of the ship Glory of the Seas his life's work. His enthusiasm has extended to two books, archeological digs and lectures throughout the United States.
