Re: Books by Sailors
This would be a shameless plug.
James L. Nelson. Long time friend. Grew my first hangover in his mom's living room, sometime in the 70's. He sailed on Lady Washington for 7 years. Curse of the Black Pearl, the Interceptor anyone? Married another sailor (SHE's real nice) and started writing historical nautical fiction and nonfiction. He has a dozen or so books out there available wherever fine books are sold. He's been on History Channel, Discovery Channel and others.
Great guy, real character, likes beer.
