Book Description
Excerpts from "Captains All" "I am a carpenter, just like Jesus was a carpenter. Whatever they need ... I build it. Sometimes it's a chapel ... sometimes it's a scaffold."
A Machester boy sails to America.
After many adventures, an array of gods, demons and ghosts take on an eerie reality and threaten his life.
What other authors wrote about this book
"The start is a wonderful stream of consciousness, the kind we used to have from Proust all the way to Kerouac, and which for some unclear reason to me, we no longer get."
"On the one hand, you have the moment by moment perceptions, where each moment is a dangling act promising the next to have the same urgency as the previous; then you have the journalistic style.... just telling it like it is.... finally you have the stream of consciousness that keep popping up.... like a Halloween ghost."
------------------------
"'The Final Cruise' reminds me a little of Richard Henry Dana's book 'Two Years Before the Mast.'
"There is a place on the coast of southern California, near San Diego called "Dana Point" where, in the book, he transported cow hides from the missions, by rappelling down a cliff with ropes. The cliff is still there today.
"You also seem to capture the spirit of Dana's travels across the world, with all it's ups and downs, especially never getting enough sleep since there's always a storm that needs to be fought against and the sails always needs to be patched."

Annotation
Here is a rare and fascinating collection of personal letters written by 18 of the thousands of British emigrants who came to North America just prior to the American Revolution. The letters reveal the motivations, characteristics, and emotions of these subjects and also provide new insights into British-American migration of the time, especially personal networks among family and friends.
