Found a new book series about 1800 Sailing
      #1594953 - 06/17/14 05:46 PM (99.12.86.52)

If you liked the Hornblower series and the Patrick O'Brian, here is a "new" author. Dewey Lambdin.

I just finished the first book, The King's Coat, some nice mentions of Anegada and sailing down Drake's Channel.

I did the audio version so I can't comment if there were pictures to color.

Mike,
Glad to find another person living vicarously through all the historical/sailing books from the 1880's. After reading the same books you mentioned (and I did like the full Lambdin series) I also went through the Nathaniel Drinkwater series by Richard Woodman, Thomas Kydd by Julian Stockwell and the Kit Faulkner series. However, my favorite is the Ramage series by Dudley Pope.

Am currently wading through the Rundel series by N. Beetham Stark, which is some of the worst writing ever - this author seriously needs a good editor!

I also follow the website McBooks which specializes in historic novels.

Good Reading!

Thanks! Loved both of those series!
