Jack Tar's Story, Myra Glenn, is a new book that "examines the autobiographies and memoirs of antebellum American sailors..." It uses ship logs, impressment records, crew lists, etc. to document the stories told by the sailors.
The period from late colonial times through the 19th C. is covered.

The book, like many histories, is rather expensive, US $68 at Amazon.
I haven't seen it so I can neither recommend nor damn it, but you might be able to look at a copy at better book shops.
