Overview

A charming compendium of anecdotes, fun facts, and grin-inducing historical photos of cats on daring expeditions, and the seamen who went with them

While the extraordinary exploits of the seafarers who mapped the world have been well documented, those of their indispensable pest controllers, shipmates, and mascots haven't--until now. Drawing on journals, newspaper reports, photographs, and more, Seafurrers provides us with a cat's-eye view of maritime history. Forty tales recount the adventures of these valiant felines and point out nuggets of trivia along the way, including:

  • The math behind the damage rats could do on ships
  • How flying fish (and even squid) "fly"
  • Why cats don't get scurvy.

This deft genealogy of cat-human friendship is sure to leave readers with a new appreciation of the cats who helped us at sea (and those we helplessly serve at home).
