[To leave a comment go right to the end of the page and just enter it in the ‘Leave a Reply’ box]
A revealing and spirited account of life ashore in Kydd’s day.
Following on from their fascinating accounts of Jack Tar at sea, Roy and Lesley Adkins vividly portray fascinating aspects of the daily lives of ordinary people in Georgian England.
The book is eminently readable from cover to cover, or can be dipped into from time to time.
To confess, I couldn’t leave it behind and took it on my location research trip to France!
