Down to The Sea : The Fishing Schooners Of Gloucester
Down to the Sea is an illustrated chronicle of these everlastingly romantic vessels and of the intrepid captains and crews who worked them from the early eighteenth until well into the first quarter of this century. It is the tale of men, a town, and an industry that swiftly became the stuff of American legend. Here, too, are previously unpublished masterpieces of marine photography, many from the Cape Ann Historical Association s important collection, which provide a visual record of both shocking hardship and sheer physical beauty. Gloucester, her boats and her crews are much in the news these days. In this glorious book we see that the legacy, legends, and tragedies that have always been integral to this brave harbor are nothing new; only the names have changed.
