Sixpence for the Wind

Knot of Nautical Folklore
A non fiction book by

An introduction to the field of sealore and the collected wisdom and superstition of seafarers. A creator of colourful characters, seafaring has a vast and fascinating history where every voyage could be an adventure. This book captures a fragment of that character and adventure, and records some of the fast-fading knowledge. Much of this lore is informative, yet the purpose of this volume is to entertain - both the experienced sea traveller and those with an armchair interest in things nautical.
