Author(s): Joan Druett
A look at maritime history from the female perspective. Joan Druett introduces a wide array of characters and re-creates their adventures. Learn about pirate queens, women who dressed as men to join unsuspecting crews and serve with honour, rescue workers and female captains.
"Druett restores important and long-lost chapters in maritime history. It also is great reading, especially for those who love tales of risk, glory, gritty adventure, and action-packed history." Karin Winegar, Minneapolis Star-Tribune
