Mary Bercaw Edwards spent three and a half years of her childhood at sea, sailing around the world with her family. Now one of the world's foremost scholars of Herman Melville, the associate professor of English in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences spends her school years teaching and doing research on the Avery Point campus. But during the summer, she goes back in time -- to Mystic Seaport, where she works on ships like those Melville himself would have walked. Join her as she shows us "the ropes" of the whale ships from the turn of the century.
