    About The Book

    From the author of Seafaring Lore & Legend comes this comprehensive and entertaining catalog and reference of nautical terms we all use in everyday speech, usually without knowing it. The language of the sea, it seems, has always been too rich and colorful to be confined to ships. Sailing men like the hardy Nantucket whalers, the Elizabethan sea dogs who defended their nation from the Spanish Armada, the grizzled fishermen of Nova Scotia and the crews of the great clipper ships have left us as part of their legacy a remarkable contribution to the English language. To bale (bail) out, the coast is clear, turn a blind eye, pillage, in deep water, and salvo are just a few of the nautical terms that have become part of our everyday language. Horse There’s The Devil To Pay, Ship To Shore tells the story of how nautical language has evolved into common usage. While providing definitions and word origins, the book is also anecdotal in tone and recounts tales of such seafaring men as Sir Francis Drake, Captain Cook, and John Paul Jones. Much more than a dictionary, this work paints a vivid picture of the seaman’s daily life in the age of sail and honors the rich cultural heritage of our seafaring tradition. Originally published as a USD52.00 hardcover by reference publisher ABC-CLIO in 1993, Ship To Shore is an ideal addition to the IM list.
