Description: From the publisher: "This book, featuring 100 photographs culled from the archives of the Mariner's Museum, depicts the complex, often deeply passionate relationships of mariners with their vessels and the sea....[E]ach photograph chronicles a fragment of the mariner's experience over the past 200 years--shipbuilding, the making of a wooden skiff, commercial fishing and whaling, amateur sailing, deep-sea diving, naval encounters and much more....Benson's essays, which accompany the photographs, unify image and story in a richly evocative vignette of time and place, of historical, societal, and individual meaning."
