Overview
A cat's-eye view of maritime history

We remember the bold seafarers of yore--from Magellan to Shackleton--for their extraordinary exploits: new lands discovered, storms weathered, and battles won. But somehow history has neglected the stalwart, hardworking species who made it all possible . . . yes, the noble cat

In Seafurrers, able sea cat Bart sets the record straight at last. "Fear of water" aside, cats were indispensable at sea--both as pest controllers and as beloved mascots. Thirty-eight tales recount the adventures of Trim (who circumnavigated Australia), Tom (the sole feline survivor of the sinking of the USS Maine), celebrity cat Simon (a veteran of the Yangtze Incident), and other furry heroes.

Filled with nautical trivia, rare photographs, and whimsical illustrations, this deft genealogy of human-feline friendship will stir your regard for the incomparable cat--whether on the couch or in the crow's nest
