Overview

eNotated Classics are a completely new approach that takes advantage of eBook technology to extend and enrich books in a way that’s convenient to use and easy for the reader. Most eBooks are simple conversions of paper books, eNotated editions add an extra layer of meaning to bring the book to life in your hands.

Chris Thomerson, lifelong sailor and student of maritime history, provides the background and explanations readers need to thoroughly understand, appreciate, and enjoy this narrative by adding expert electronic annotations linked to words and phrases in the original text.

For instance, when Dana writes, “scuttled butt” Thomerson explains that this is a “Cask, or butt, of drinking water on deck, with a hole for the sailors to drink from. The only place available to exchange a word while working on deck, under the pretense of getting a drink. Hence, 'scuttle-butt' has come to mean inside knowledge or, gossip.”

Meet the Author

Chris Thomerson grew up sailing the North Sea off the east coast of Great Britain starting in the late 1950s. His constant companion of the time was a paperback book "A Dictionary of Sailing" and he mystified his parents by quietly studying the complex rig of sailing ships from previous centuries. They were probably glad it reduced the amount of other mischief he got up to in his youth. He has since sailed small boats in French Polynesia, the Mediterranean, and up and down the west coast of Mexico and the USA, the graveyard of the Pacific. His most cherished adventures have been following the path of various explorers up the Inside Passage to Alaska, in small sailing boats. He has yet to be shipwrecked.
