The Story of Schooner Third Sea
by Harold Stephens
This book is about a dream, about a man who wanted to sail the South Seas and Asian waters aboard his own boat, but with the earnings of a writer, he lacked the finances. Never-the-less, with little money but a lot of determination, he made that dream come true, through a rather cunning scheme. You will read about the people, famous and not so famous, who sailed aboard her, about her adventures and landfalls, about pirates, renegades and typhoons she encountered. You will read about her tragic loss in a hurricane that ravaged the Hawaiian Islands. This is more than a yachting tale about a schooner; it is an inspiration to both young and old who dream about going to sea aboard a sailing ship. Not since Jack London has there been another book like it.
