Fishlock's Sea Stories
In Fishlock’s Sea Stories, the popular broadcaster and author Trevor Fishlock turns his attention to Wales’s maritime history. In his elegant and informative style Fishlock explores the history of Wales’s relationship with the sea, from shipbuilding and seafaring to smuggling and emigration.
Published to accompany the BBC Wales series, the book includes chapters on lighthouses, lifeboats and pilots; the Welsh influence on Liverpool as Britain’s major port; the importance of the Industrial Revolution in the growth and decline of Wales’s ports; policing the water of Wales; and the everyday life of ferries and pleasure-boats.
Illustrated throughout in colour.
