Ocean Bound Women is an intriguing first-hand narrative of circumnavigating the globe in the 1880s. Based on family documents stored in a seaman's chest, this book provides a scholarly account of the history of the Swedish sailing-ship Atlantic (1876-1911) and her crew.Part of the book is based upon a diary written by a Scandinavian woman, which stands as the uniting text for the years 1885-1887, connecting the reader to all events in the chronicle. Other sources consist of manuscripts, documents and accounts collected from family descendants along with oral traditions and personal memories--all hitherto unpublished.This is a touching life story of two motherless sisters who took on a ship in their teens: a book about life on the oceans and meeting with people of many different nations.
