Full Description:

“How he [Capt. Samuel Samuels] ends his narrative is just as compelling as how he begins, and his words will haunt readers long after they close the cover.”

Pirates and Privateers

“This book is a quintessential nautical yard…The Dreadnought’s widely-hailed captain was as skilled with a pen as he was when managing a ship in a raging storm. From Forecastle to Cabin is a nautical page-turner that may be completed in an evening. It is a splendid read.”

The Northern Mariner/Le marin du nord, October 2012

This is the autobiography of an American who ran away to sea at the age of 11 and charts his rise from the lowliest seaman to the command of his own ship and the occupation of the luxurious after cabin. Best known as captain of the Dreadnought in his later years, Samuel Samuels was often in danger both ashore and afloat, and his many adventures make excellent stories.

Captain Samuel Samuels was raised in Pennsylvania, and left home as a young boy after his father remarried. He was forced to retire from his seagoing career after serious injury, only to forge a second successful career as the skipper of several large racing yachts in the 1870s and 1880s.
