The eNotated Two Years Before the Mast Details

eNotated Classics are a completely new approach that takes advantage of eBook technology to extend and enrich books in a way that’s convenient to use and easy for the reader. Most eBooks are simple conversions of paper books, eNotated editions add an extra layer of meaning to bring the book to life in your hands.


Chris Thomerson, lifelong sailor and student of maritime history, provides the background and explanations readers need to thoroughly understand, appreciate, and enjoy this narrative by adding expert electronic annotations linked to words and phrases in the original text.


For instance, when Dana writes, “scuttled butt” Thomerson explains that this is a “Cask, or butt, of drinking water on deck, with a hole for the sailors to drink from. The only place available to exchange a word while working on deck, under the pretense of getting a drink. Hence, 'scuttle-butt' has come to mean inside knowledge or, gossip.”
