Two Years Before the Mast
A Personal Narrative of Life at SeaBook - 2001
The story of a young man's adventure sailing from Boston, around Cape Horn, to the California coast is a riveting, insightful account of life at sea (and the best surviving account of what it was like in 1834), replete with fascinating historical detail on California before the gold rush.
