She was a sister sailor: the whaling journals of Mary Brewster, 1845-1851
Now in Mystic Seaport's G.W. Blunt White Library, Mary Brewster's journals are here published for the first time. As the most complete account of the female experience at sea, this volume will be of great interest to both scholars and enthusiasts of whaling and maritime history, Pacific history, and women's history.
"She Was a Sister Sailor" was recognized by the North American Society for Oceanic History as the best non-naval book of nautical history published in 1992.
