"(A)n absorbing look at life aboard the sailing vessels which plied the North Atlantic during the French colonial era in North America. Focusing on the first half of the eighteenth century and the Seven Years' War period, this book analyses four major aspects of the crossing: maritime traffic and the outfit of vessels; the Atlantic course and navigation; the people and their occupations; and life aboard the ship. Together they present a fascinating view of sea life. Gilles Proulx has used official correspondence between the Minister of Marine and the Canadian colonial authorities, and the papers siezed on boarded vessels, as well as over one hundred log-books and personal diaries, to obtain a wealth of detail about the rigours of the colonial shipboard experience." Minor wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, one tiny corner bump. Dust jacket has light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, small faint line indentation on front panel, very light rubbing.
