Read an Excerpt

Sailors have long considered the albatross good luck, probably because the sight of one suggested they were near land. Unfortunately for superstitious seafarers, the giant bird can last for years at sea. Its fame was cemented by a Coleridge poem about a foolish young sailor who shot one and was forced by shipmates to wear it round his neck – hence the bad-luck phrase "albatross around the neck".
