Down To The Sea In Ships: Of Ageless Oceans and Modern Men

By Horatio Clare

For millennia, the seaways have carried our items, cultures and ideas, the terrors of warfare and the bounties of peace - they usually have by no means been busier than they're at the present time. yet notwithstanding our normality is dependent upon delivery, it's a global which passes mostly unconsidered, unseen and unrecorded. Out of sight, in each lonely nook of each sea, via each evening, on a daily basis, and each conceivable climate, tiny crews of seafarers paintings the enormous ships which hold landed lifestyles afloat. those usual males (and they're usually males) dwell awesome lives, topic to pressures we all know - households, relationships, goals and fears - and to risks and problems we will be able to in simple terms think, from hurricanes and pirates to years of confinement in detrimental, if now not hellish, environments.

Horatio Clare joins box ships, vacationing within the corporation in their crews and captains. jointly they event unforgettable trips: the 1st, from East to West (Felixstowe to l. a., through Suez) is wealthy with Mediterranean heritage, torn with storm nights and gilded with an unearthly Pacific peace; the second one northerly passage, from Antwerp to Montreal, reeks of diesel, wuthers with gales and is going to frozen areas of the North Atlantic, in deep wintry weather, the place the ocean itself turns out haunted.

In Clare's bright prose a contemporary does conflict with implacable forces, because the ships pass seas of heritage and incident, whereas seafarers spread the tales in their lives, telling their stories and yarns. a stunning and terrifying portrait of the oceans and their human topics, and a desirable learn of huge enterprise afloat, all the way down to the ocean in Ships is a relocating tribute to those that reside and paintings at the nice waters, faraway from land.
