Breverton's Nautical Curiosities by Terry Breverton

Breverton's Nautical Curiosities is about ships, people and the sea. However, unlike many other nautical compendiums, the focus of this book is on the unusual, the overlooked or the downright extraordinary! Breverton's Nautical Curiosities is arranged into thematic chapters:

  • The ocean environment - animals, geography, geology, weather, coasts, islands
  • Ship types and parts - from the first boat to the latest cutting-edge technology
  • People - heroes, heroines, pirates, sailors, captains
  • Disasters, battles, wars
  • Literature - stories, myths, legends, proclamations, acts, orders
  • Nautical sayings and slang

Readers will be stimulated to read more about the remarkable men - explorers, admirals and trawlermen - who have shaped our world.
