Description
In the 1800s, when sailing ships ruled the seas, chanteys were sung by sailors as they worked. The Sailor's Alphabet is a traditional alphabet chantey that not only captures the spirit of these songs and their times but also affords a stem-to-stern tour of a U.S. Navy frigate. From the topsails to the forecastle to the keelson, McCurdy piques young readers' interest in the high seas. Illustrated with stunningly rendered, detailed scratchboard drawings, this is an invigorating slice of United States history and a perfect book for ship lovers of all ages.
