I've recently taken up an interest in maritime adventures. I greatly enjoyed the collection of stories in this book, most from well known authors. I liked the alternating short story and poetry pattern. Overall the stories were exciting and peaked my interest in historical, fictional, and inexplicable nautical adventures. The compilator of theses stories did an excellent job giving the reader background to the stories, writers, and terminology associated with the history of seamanship.
