Harbors and High Seas (Third Edition)
by King, Dean
List price: $26.50
Travel along with Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin in this definitive edition of the indispensable companion to the beloved seafaring tales of Patrick O'Brian. For every novel in the series you will find a corresponding chapter in Harbors and High seas, describing the location of the action; providing background information on remote cities, key ports, and essential geographical features; and touching on significant events, though never giving away the twists in the plot. Featured in this third edition is a new, final chapter, which includes maps like those in previous editions, depicting sea voyages, overland routes, battles, storms, landings, and other important events. Additional maps are devoted to the currents, wind patterns, and trade routes, as well as to London, Whitehall, the British Isles, and the political landscape during the Napoleonic wars. Illustrations and descriptive captions from The Naval Chronicle reveal the latest information of the day, as Jack Aubrey himself would have seen it.
