STAR OF INDIA: The Log of an Iron Ship
By Jerry MacMullen

The Star of India is the oldest ship afloat that still puts to sea regularly. Launched on the Isle of Man in 1863 as Euterpe, she carried thousands of emigrants to New Zealand and Australia. Renamed Star of India, she ended her career in the Alaskan salmon trade, retiring in 1923. Before being preserved as a living, sailing, museum ship in San Diego, she was frozen into the ice of the Bering Sea, dismasted in a typhoon, survived collisions at sea, and has been aground more than once. The author, Jerry MacMullen, was a crucial figure in her far-from-inevitable restoration.
