As a guide to the Patrick O'Brian books it does a great job of giving historical background, including contemporary illustrations, maps of the various journeys Jack & Stephen made, and even helping the reader remember key events in the various novels. My one big complaint is I wish there had been more about the ships - a nice illustration of a ship with some of the more common terms from the novels labeled - that would have been very handy. I still found myself guessing/skipping over the more technical descriptions in the novels. ( )

This is a great companion for readers of the Aubrey/Maturin series. Well worth it. ( )

What's the best route from Botany Bay to Moahu? Find the answers to these and hundreds of other questions in this indispensable guide to the terrain and cartography of O'Brian's Aubrey-Maturin novels.
