Every song is translated into English (and cleaned up a bit) where necessary, and accompanied by a brief history of its origins and its travels from country to country. Some 250 illustrations are integrated with the narrative and songs. There are specially commissioned diagrams and profiles to explain and identify the natures and workings of sailing ships. There are rare historical paintings, drawings, and photographs of ships and ports, dives and waterfronts, deck scenes and sailors, with their Judies, Julias, and Madeleines.
