For this week’s nonfiction round-up, we celebrate a family memoir and a nautical history!
“Lushly detailed and full of eco-devotion, this candid narrative has much to say about human beings bearing burdens, coping, and aiding one another.”–Kirkus Reviews
ENDEAVOUR: The Ship That Changed the World by Peter Moore
“A dense but enlightening history of a highly significant 18th-century vessel…. History at its most exciting and revealing.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
“With an acute eye, Moore limns the conflicting human impulses in the first episodes of this epoch-making drama. Maritime history that opens onto much more.”–Booklist, starred review
