User reviews
A fabulous history of the end of the windjammer era. The late Mr Villiers has done his research and this work is a tribute to those daring men who braved the wrath of Cape Horn. I read this years ago and the book stayed with me so much that I had to buy it and read it again. Anyone who loves the old sailing ships should have this book.
Fine read.
