Inside cover notes:
Seaman Dan (Henry Gibson Dan) is a Torres Strait Islander elder born in 1929 on Thursday Island, Queensland. As a young man he began working in maritime industries across northern Australia – from the Indian Ocean in the west to the Coral Sea in the east. He spent decades as a deep-water pearl shell diver, trochus shell harvester and boat-skipper, but he has also always been a community musician.
Seaman Dan's recording career did not begin until he was 70 years of age! Sailing Home – his 5th recording – is a celebration of his love of the sea and the life of a sailor.
