    Richard Henry Dana, a law student turned sailor for health reasons, sailed in 1834 aboard the brig Pilgrim on a voyage from Boston around Cape Horn to California. Drawing from his journals, Two Years Before the Mast gives a vivid and detailed account, shrewdly observed and beautifully described, of a common sailor's wretched treatment at sea, and of a way of life virtually unknown at that time.

    What did you love best about Two Years Before the Mast?

    I felt as I was there aboard ship with the treatment the author and reader put forth. I was afraid it could be dull in some places, but it never was.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Two Years Before the Mast?

    When the author relayed the experiences of the captain's authoritarian control of the ship, right or wrong, in the flogging incident on the brig, "Pilgrim". The author's intensity magnified the moment.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Bernard Mayes?

    Yes


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Two Year Before the Mast.,,a real look into the hardships of 19th Century Sailing.


    Any additional comments?

    A must read for those that are into sailing ships of the 1800's.
