Considering accounts written by Northwest Coast marine tourists between 1861 and 1990, Nancy Pagh examines the ways that gender influences the roles that women play at sea, the spaces they occupy on boats, and the language they use to describe their experiences, their natural surroundings, and their contacts with Native peoples.
