What a great story, well written and researched. I have the pleasure of knowing the author and have enjoyed many discussions on the subject when walking our dogs. I'm sure the author has more publications in mind. Looking forward to the next one.

We received in post today the paperback copy I purchased on line. You did a marvelous job of capturing the adventure and charm of not only your Grandfather's life but also the spirit of the British seaman. The pictures and paintings were excellent hope you find the original painting. You have documented an amazing time in British history and made it come to life for all who will read it. Great job and thank you for the personalized edition. My family will treasure it.

Well, what a read! This book makes a truly fascinating read, you really get the feel of life on board a clipper ship in the days of the Teviotdale and Cutty Sark in the 1870's. The presentation of the book is very good, some awesome illustrations, paintings and artworks. Very well researched and described. This is a family with generations of seafarers, with both tragic stories and uplifting articles. A must read book, tell your friends.

Wonderful true story written by one of the crew. More research by his grandson to find documents about the shipwreck , makes it more interesting.
