Ship, the Saint, and the Sailor

Ship, the Saint, and the Sailor

17.99

Since its sinking in 1860 while transporting a valuable cargo of ice, the Kad’yak ship had remained submerged underwater and faded in Alaska’s memory, covered by the legend of an experienced but perhaps rusty sailor and a broken promise to a saint. Presumed gone or else destroyed, it wasn’t until 143 years later that the Kad’yak was found. 
An important part of Alaska’s history told from Stevens’s modern-day sea expedition, The Ship, the Saint, and the Sailor reveals one of the oldest known shipwreck sites in Alaska discovered and its continuing story today.
