"She captains", who infamously possessed "the bodies of women and the souls of men", thrilled and terrorized their shipmates, doing "deeds beyond the valor of women."In her inimitable, yarn-spinning style, award-winning historian Joan Druett paints a vivid portrait of real women who were drawn to the ocean's beauty—and danger—and dared to captain ships of their own. The book tells the stories of women sea captains, pirates, and ship owners from the sixth century B.C. to the nineteenth century.
