Little did Dorothea Moulton know, when she agreed to chaperone her schoolteacher friend and her friend’s husband-to-be on a sailing trip from Puerto Rico to Boston, that she would end up as the skipper’s wife herself. She did. And for the next two decades Dorothea spent a large part of her married life aboard her husband’s various ships, sailing around the world, visiting mysterious and glamorous ports, and raising a family. At times earthly, and always interesting, this is Dorothea Moulton Balano’s eyewitness account of life aboard some of the last of the vaunted Maine windjammers. Paperback 160 pages
