Description

Pull up anchor, set sail and hit the open water with this wonderful collection of sea shanties and their fascinating history.

People have been singing at sea since they first set sail and sea shanties still fascinate and entertain. Composed and performed by sailors to ensure the rhythmic operation of hauling and heaving tasks aboard huge merchant vessels, the songs also boosted camaraderie, positivity and motivation. Life at sea was harsh and relentless, and these songs brought some much-needed energy and humour.

This bountiful book brings together over 50 of the best-loved ballads and explores their history, alongside stunning black and white illustrations.
