SEA OF GLORY America's Voyage of Discovery

by | Read by Scott Brick

History • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

A cruel captain, vengeful enemies, menacing icebergs, and a flogging 'round the fleet drive the crew to near mutiny in this little-known true story of an American exploring and mapping expedition in the penultimate days of sail. Under the command of Lt. Charles Wilkes, the expedition discovered Antarctica, surveyed the Columbia River, and charted dozens of new islands in the Pacific. In the story's tempestuous turns, Scott Brick's enthusiasm builds and softens like stormy waves as he portrays battle, insult, punishment, and danger. Scott Brick weathers the seven seas of salty words, except for "fo'c'sle," but, in general, he does well before the mast. J.A.H.
