Description - The Way Of A Ship by Derek Lundy

Benjamin Lundy crossed oceans under sail in the late nineteenth century and over one hundred years Derek Lundy, his great-great nephew, has re-created that journey. In The Way of a Ship he palces Benjamin on board the Beara Head with a community of fellow seamen as they perfform the exhausting and dangerous work of sailing a square-rigger across the Atlantic and round Cape Horn. Fed on a diet of pea soup, gristly sat horse, rock hard weevil-infested biscuits adn just enough lemon juice to keep scurvy at bay, the seamen were dangerously mal-nourished and sleep-deprived. But their instinct was to give their all through the battering, screaming winds. The equation was simple- they would survive if the ship survived and so they fought to save the ship.
