Publisher's Summary

Life has lost its savor for Mr. Pathurst. New York, fame, women, the arts, have all become tedious. Searching for excitement, he books passage on a cargo vessel sailing from Baltimore to Seattle on a route that travels around the treacherous Cape Horn.

Pathurst encounters more than he ever expected in rough seas, turbulent storms, and a mutinous crew. His epic struggles aboard the sailing ship Elsinore have given him a new love for life, but will he survive in time to profit from it?

Just can't listen

This story is not bad, but I couldn't get through the first third of the book to let it finish creating the characters and building the story line. I didn't finish listening because the reader just seemed to drone on and on. With the exception of the mariner-type accent of the first mate, he just didn't give the characters any personality. My mind would drift while trying to listen. I simply ran out of patience.
