Lewis Coolidge was a nephew of Billy Dawes, the man who accompanied Paul Revere on his ride: Coolidge made a five-year voyage around the globe aboard the Amethyst, and his private diary of his journey offers insights into 19th century sealing trade practices and the social sentiments and culture of his times. A fine addition for any college-level library strong in world history and culture.
