About The Book
Long before women had the right to vote, earn money, or have lives of their own, “she captains” — bold women distinguished for courageous enterprise on the high seas — thrilled and terrorized their shipmates, performed acts of valor, and pirated with the best of their male counterparts. From the warrior queens of the sixth century b.c. to the female shipowners influential in opening the Northwest Passage, She Captains brings together a real-life cast of characters whose audacity and bravado will capture the imagination. In her inimitable style, Joan Druett paints a vivid portrait of real women who were drawn to the ocean’s beauty — and danger — and dared to captain ships of their own.
