Description: This book focuses on two centuries of early American maritime history, years when the Atlantic Ocean beckoned as the great frontier. Drawing on the records of seamen who sailed from Salem, Massachusetts, in the colonial and early national period, the book uncovers the everyday lives of several thousand seafaring men and their families. nbsp; "Young Men and the Seaprovides a wonderful glimpse, as grounded as it is imaginative, into the lives of families along New England's long coast."—Marla R. Miller,nbsp; International Journal of Maritime History "Casting away what we think we know, Vickers has redefined the meaning of seafaring under sail. Distinguished by impeccable scholarship and innovative methodology, this is the most original American maritime history ever published."— W. Jeffrey Bolster, author ofBlack Jacks: African American Seamen in the Age of Sail nbsp; "A phenomenal work of scholarship, exquisitely crafted, [and] delightful to read."—Paul E. Fontenoy,Nautical Research Journal "Through exhaustive research and fluid writing, the author is able to convey to the reader the ways in which seafaring changed during this period, and what these changes meant to Salem (and by extension, the rest of maritime New England). . . .Young Men and the Seais an important work that redirects the attention of scholars back to the maritime dimension of New England's history. . . . Deserves a wide audience and guarantees an engaged readership."—Timothy G. Lynch,The Northern Mariner nbsp;
