"From William Bradford's Of Plymouth Plantation (1651), the most comprehensive of all contemporary accounts of settlement in seventeenth century America, to Mary Rowlandson's Sovereignty and Goodness of God (1682), the best known of the Indian captivity narratives to come out of King Philip's War, to Benjamin Church's Entertaining Passages Relating to Philip's War (1716), an eye-opening account from Church's field notes from battle, the rare and fascinating documents gathered in this volume offer vivid glimpses into the experiences of early New England and the beginnings of what would become the United States.

Two years before the mast : and Twenty-four years after by Richard Henry Dana( Book )

11 editions published between 1981 and 1986 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Henry Dana (1815-1882) of Boston left his studies at Harvard in 1834 in the hope that a sea voyage would aid his failing eyesight. He shipped out of Boston as a common seaman on board the brig Pilgrim bound for the Pacific, and returned to Massachusetts two years later. Completing his education, Dana became a leader of the American bar, an expert on maritime law, and a life-long advocate of the rights of the merchant seamen he had come to know on the Pilgrim and other vessels. Two years before the mast (1911) is based on the diary Dana kept while at sea. First published in 1841, it is one of America's most famous accounts of life at sea. It contains a rare and detailed account of life on the California coast a decade before the Gold Rush revolutionized the region's culture and society. Dana chronicles stops at the ports of Monterey, San Pedro, San Diego, Santa Barbara, and Santa Clara. He describes the lives of sailors in the ports and their work of hide-curing on the beaches, and he gives close attention to the daily life of the peoples of California: Hispanic, Native American, and European

"The Private Journal of William Reynolds brings to life the boisterous world traversed by the six vessels than comprised America's first oceangoing voyage of discovery - the U.S. Exploring Expedition of 1838-1842. Midshipman William Reynolds describes the harrowing 87,000 mile, four-year circuit of the globe, and relates the story of how the abusive commander of the "Ex. Ex.," Lieutenant Charles Wilkes, gradually lost the support of his crew. With a seaman's understanding and an artist's appreciation for the wild beauty that surrounds him, Reynolds combines meticulous observations with a young man's sense of wonder and, on occasion, terror as he is tossed about by the tremendous seas."--Jacket
