Book Notice: Sea Struck

Sea Struck is the 2004 winner of the NASOH Primary Source Materials award. The book, written by W. H. Bunting follows the accounts of voyages drawn from journals kept by three Massachusetts seamen on voyages to the Pacific in the 19th century.

Book includes the complete transcript of one the diaries, complimented by entries from the other two to provide a three dimensional, and interesting view of life at sea.
