    Below is a truncated version of my review. To read the full review please click here: http://joshuarigsby.com/2014/09/28/bo...This book is for the die hard fan of nautical history. It takes a blow by blow account of Cutty Sark's construction, voyages, and ultimate fate. In several places Lubbock quotes directly from the abstract log, in others, he extrapolates data based on other ship's logs, hearsay, and interviews with former captains and crew. This leads to an interesting blend of ships times, weights, and compass coordinates with splashes of sailing stories and near death experiences. If you are intimidated by nautical jargon, this book is not for you. Lubbock is writing for his sea-loving colleagues and contemporaries, not for landlubbing 21st century suburbanites. As such, you may want to keep a nautical dictionary close by. I usually referred to my "Nautical Terms Glossary" app and/or Wikipedia when I didn't know what was going on. It is obvious from the text that Lubbock cares a great deal about preserving and telling the stories of great sailing ships. We have him to thank for compiling this data in one place. My only minor quibble is that I wished he had flushed out a few more primary source documents before making some of his claims. Though, finding these documents today is considerably easier than when he wrote this book nearly a hundred years ago. If you are interested in the Cutty Sark and/or maritime history you should definitely give this one a read. Also, be sure to follow "Cutty Sark Log" on Twitter: https://twitter.com/CuttySarkLog.
