Harbors, Flows, and Migrations

Poised between the land and the sea, enabling the dynamic flow of people and goods, while also figuratively representing a safe place of rest and refuge, the harbor constitutes a liminal, ambivalent space par excellence that has been central to the American imagination and history since the early colonial days. From the mythical tales of discovery and foundation to the endless flows of migrants, through the dark pages of the slave trade and the imperialistic dream of an ever-expanding nation, harbors, both as a trope and as physical spaces, powerfully signify the American experience. Today, at a time when ideas of border protection and policing gain political prominence in the U.S. and elsew...

Literary Nonfiction. African American Studies. Suspended between continents and cultures, Donald Quist charts the forceful undercurrents of an American identity. Through these essays Quist explores feelings of oppression and alienation as he wrestles with a single act of violence in a Washington, DC suburb, racial tensions in a rural South Carolina town, and the welcome anonymity of crowded Bangkok streets. These personal narratives are rich with Quist's experience growing up as a person of color caught between parents, socioeconomic classes, and the countries he calls home. "In HARBORS, Donald Quist gathers those moments of clarity that shape one man's consciousness about the black experien...

Harbors and High Seas

A fascinating and comprehensive collection of maps of the streets, seas, and coasts of Patrick O’Brian’s Aubrey–Maturinseries The tall-masted sailing ships of the early nineteenth century were the technological miracles of their day, allowing their crews to traverse the seas with greater speed than had ever been possible before. Novelist Patrick O’Brian captured the thrill of that era with his characters Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin, who visited exotic locales in the service of the Royal Navy. From frigid Dieppe to balmy Batavia, they strolled the ports of the world as casually as most do the streets of their hometown. Packed with maps and illustrations from the greatest age of sail, this volume shows not just where Aubrey and Maturin went, but how they got there. An incomparable reference for devotees of O’Brian’s novels and anyone who has dreamed of climbing aboard a warship, Harbors and High Seas is a captivating portrait of life on the sea, when nothing stood between man and ocean but grit, daring, and a few creaking planks of wood.

Catalina Island—the name conjures images of a pristine tropical island. Located twenty-six miles off the coast of Southern California, Catalina Island is known as the “island of romance” for good reason. A popular destination for boaters, fishermen, and tourists, it’s a recreational mecca at sea—a place where people come to escape from the reality of urban life. Boasting 86,000 square miles of unspoiled and undeveloped natural beauty, Catalina is an island paradise with wild animals, surrounded by an ocean teeming with fish. For thirty-two years, Charles Douglas “Doug” Oudin lived a fantasy life on this secluded oasis. As the former harbormaster, he saw it all—harrowing storms, dramatic ocean rescues, traumatic accidents, and the tragic death of actress Natalie Wood. Encounters with sharks, buffalo, wild boar, and even a “sea serpent” are just a few of the strange and unique experiences he had while living on the island. Now, in this memoir, he shares his story. For those who know and love Catalina—and those who have always wanted to visit—Between Two Harbors reveals a glimpse of what life on the island is really like.
