Synopses & Reviews
The highly successful, one-of-a-kind atlas to the beloved novels of Patrick O'Brian is back in a revised and expanded edition. Since the release of the first edition, two new Aubrey-Maturin novels have appeared--The Yellow Admiral and The Hundred Days--and new chapters are devoted to each of them. Author Dean King and a team of cartographers have created exclusive maps for each of the novels in this renowned series, depicting the routes of voyages taken and locating the sites of major battles, storms, landings, crossings, and other events. Locations of major importance are extensively described in the charming, yet authoritative text.
Called "a treasure" by The Louisville Courier-Journal and "good news for all you Patrick O'Brian fans" by the Chicago Tribune, here is an indispensable guide to navigating one of the decade's most popular fiction series.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -227) and index.
