The Way of a Ship book.

The Way of a Ship book. In The Way of a Ship, Derek Lundy places his seafaring great-great uncle, Benjamin Lundy, on board the Beara Head and brings to life the ship’s community as it performs the exhausting and dangerous work of sailing a square-rigger across the sea. The beautiful, widow-making, deep-sea sailing ships could sail fast in almost all weather and carry substantial cargo.

When, as a young man in the 1880s, Benjamin Lundy signed up for duty aboard a square-rigged commercial sailing vessel, he began a journey more exciting, and more terrifying, than he could have ever imagined: a treacherous, white-knuckle passage around that notorious "graveyard of ships," Cape Horn. A century later, Derek Lundy, author of the bestselling Godforsaken Sea and an accomplished amateur seaman himself, set out to recount his forebear's journey.

Derek Lundy (born December 14, 1946) is a Canadian author. His first published book was Scott Turow: Meeting the Enemy.

Reviews about The Way of the Ship (7):

My Son, Brendan gave me a copy of this book for my eightieth Birthday recently and it is a treasure; I could feel the cold and wet working into my oilskins and my hands and arms did not start to recover until we had weathered Cape Stiff. Yes, I said we because this is a probably mostly true and factual story about blue water sailors learning to climb the heights on masts, finding almost inhuman reserves of energy when survival is at stake and feeling a sense of accomplishment when looking back on the voyage; making mere men into blue water sailors who largely get along under difficult circumstances better than most. To feel as if you were and are a true seafarer you had to be a successful Cape Horn sailor, everything else pales in comparison. A truly well done book about the Lundy family.

I read another book, same title (The Way of a Ship), different author (Alan Villiers) now out of print, a long time ago, and enjoyed it immensely. This is in a similar vein, and it captures the romance of commerce under sail, as well as the extreme challenges faced by a very small handful of men. These monster machines were operated almost entirely by hand by shockingly under-strength crews living for months on end in intolerable conditions with grievous injury or death a constant threat by indifferent gales and malevolent seas. An amazing tale which attempts to answer the question, but leaves you still wondering, "How did they do it?" If you've ever looked wistfully at a tall ship and dreamed of the romantic adventure of going to sea, this excellent tale will cure you of that notion.

Great book if you like 4 masted ships and wonder how they operated plus - a bunch of interesting history about seaman and sailing ships and life in the late 1800's. Good writing on top of all that. Engrossing story to go along with all the historical stuff. Very fun read.
black coffe
Good read. Although it's basically a fictional story, it's much like Moby Dick in that it's nautically and historically correct. Sailing the Cape, or the open ocean, in a sail ship is not for the faint of heart.
Stylish Monkey
Excellent reading

My Dad was a deep water sailing ship Captain, having first been around the Horn at 19 years of age, so the narration is all delightfully familiar to me. It is well narrated, and immerses you in the tale.

It's a interesting book, great to read.
The book was delivered promptly and in very good condition, though I noted a "Not for Sale - Proof Copy" title on the front. The book is well written, entertaining, and very authentic.
