About the Book

One glance at the contents of this book will tell any lover of sea stories that an exciting saga of danger and adventure aboard a three-masted sailing ship named the Windhover is about to unfold. She leaves Bermuda in the summer of 1871 to cross the Atlantic and the Mediterranean en route to Naples, Italy. By no means will it be a journey without incident. On the high seas, sour provisions bring crew and captain into conflict. As the squabble becomes incendiary, the second mate, who narrates the story, must find a way to overcome a mutinous crew, regain control of the ship, and bring her to safe haven.
