The second of Graham Faiella's thrilling collections of tales gathers stories of mutiny, misery and menace. Recounting the true-life adventures and misfortunes of mariners in the 19th and early 20th centuries, these are human stories of misery and hardship, personal conflicts, tensions and often dreadful deaths. These stories will make it abundantly clear how hard life was for mariners throughout history.
