Before the Wind
The Memoir of an American Sea Captain, 1808-1833
Apart from being a consummate sailor - Tyng sailed around the world half a dozen times - the author was also an engaging storyteller. He first boarded a ship and thirteen years old and then lived life to the full, tussling with pirates, shipwrecks and storms, dropping into opium dens, making and losing fortunes, but surviving to tell the tale.
