Sail Away Ladies is the story of seafaring women who accompanied their sea captain husbands on ocean voyages in the nineteenth century. While featuring women of Cape Cod, the topic has universal application to coastal communities from Maine to Long Island.

Sail Away Ladies is the story of seafaring women who accompanied their sea captain husbands on ocean voyages in the nineteenth century. Whether aboard whaling ships, ordinary merchantmen or great clipper ships, the life of a sister sailor was filled with adventure. While most maritime histories celebrate the lives of men at sea, Sail Away Ladies uncovers what is generally not well known to the general reader - the fact that women were there as well.

Sail Away Ladies book. Winner: 2004 United States Maritime Literature Award. I found this gem in a freebie bin! Saw Cape Cod in the title and grabbed it. Set in a time period when most people think the women were soft, fragile and stay at home wives and mothers, these stories will surprise all. Women and children attended their husbands/fathers on their ocean journeys, to regions few experienced, much less, women. The writing is enthusiastic, mournful where needed, and full of insight in a topic that isn't often written about. Jun 03, 2017 Janis rated it really liked it. Shelves: 2017.

I enjoy reading about Cape Cod and its people. I had read about women on board whaling ships before and was eager to learn more. There are some interesting recounts of women at sea, but many never leave the mundane. Also, the author has vignettes or facts embedded in the text as you read. It makes my reading disjointed rather than enhanced.

I have often read about old sea captains and their adventures but had never read a comprehensive book about the women who went to sea with them. The author writes wonderful antidotes and stories of what these women went through to be with their partners. Highly recommend!
