A remarkable portrait of the sea-going life, Two Years Before the Mast is the account of Richard Henry Dana's passage as a common seaman from Boston around Cape Horn to California, and back. Elegantly described are the day-to-day routines and conversations, the sailors who manned the ship, the brutality of incompetent officers, and the style of life in the newly emerging coastal towns of California. A genuine classic of its time, this book is still commonly looked upon and enjoyed more than a hundred years since its original publication.
