Sea Lanes The Story of Mans Conquest of the Oceans by Martin Stevers and Captain John Pendlebury.  With dust jacket  1935   326 pages indexed
Few things have more fascination for mankind than the sea.
In this book the reader is taken over the globe in all kinds of craft, from the earliest boats to the most modern liners. It is as though the reader himself were "on board." Everything about ships, the sea, navigation, is explained as the tour's swift, gripping action unfolds.
In this volume, the reader fights through a howling typhoon under sail, gets the thrill of cheating death by heroic work, obtains accurate knowledge of what was done to keep the ship afloat -what was used, by whom, when and why. The same reader finds out about everything on board under steam. The highlights of maritime history are included - the mysteries of lost ships, the "inside stories" of famous voyages, the bargaining and bickering of trading in faraway ports.
Captain Pendlebury is well known among "around the world" travelers from his years of command on world cruises, and in the transatlantic, Bermudan, and West Indian services. As a boy and young man, he sailed every sea there is, in windjammers. Mr. Stevers' previous works have proved his ability to make material usually considered technical pleasantly understandable.
