Long out of print, Tuning the Rig is a masterpiece of nautical adventure and natural history. Harvey Oxenhorn had taught Conrad and Melville, but never set foot on a tall ship until he boarded the Regina Maris. His evocation of masts and spars, canvas and rigging, and of the living presence of the Regina Maris on the open ocean is some of the finest writing about life aboard ship this side of Patrick OBrian. Tuning the Rig is a beautiful, passionate examination of a mans coming to terms with himself, with his fellows, and with the diverse wonders of a fascinating arctic ecosystem.
