Overview

The high seas are sinister places, where powerful storms overwhelm unsuspecting ships and desperate sailors clash, often with tragic results. As Barbara Smith shows in this fascinating collection, many who die at sea soon return as ghosts and eerie premonitions that enrich the sea's unparalleled mystery:

· sailors cringe upon spotting the Flying Dutchman-the most legendary omen on the high seas.
