WINDJAMMERS – The Final Story

Robert Carter

I have been collecting data for this book for over 30 years. It is an anthology of stories, anecdotes, poems, photographs and drawings depicting life, culture and activities in the last commercial sailing ships between the years 1906 and 1957. It is illustrated with 42 of my paintings. It was recorded first hand from the final generation of sailing ship mariners. As there are very few still living, this book will be the last to use the words of those who experienced life in these ships.
