Bestselling nature writer Horatio Clare describes his journey across the oceans on cargo ships to chronicle the collision of man and sea. Clare joined two container ships and travelled with their crews and captains from Felixstowe to Los Angeles via Suez and from Antwerp to Montreal. He tells the story of a largely unseen world where ordinary men are living extraordinary lives and facing dangers from hurricanes to pirates. It is also a story of how big business operates afloat.

Clare is author of two memoirs, Running for the Hills, winner of the Somerset Maugham Award, and Truant; of a travel book, A Single Swallow; and of a novella, The Prince’s Pen. He writes regularly on nature for the Daily telegraph and on travel for a variety of publications.
