Book Overview

Read never-before-published poetry about the magic, beauty, and promise of sea voyages, compiled by award-winning poet Lee Bennett Hopkins.

Gorgeous illustrations surround a collection of poetry written for children about the magic, beauty, and promise of sea voyages. Compiled and edited by award-winning poet Lee Bennett Hopkins, the poems describe how the sea has historically shone as a metaphor for hope and despair and served as a pathway for people searching for new life, including poems about the pilgrims coming to the New World, the Mariel boatlift, the Vietnamese boat people, a Dutch slave ship, the current migration situation in the Mediterranean, and the voyage of the St. Louis.
