Life Beneath the Sails was a book of sea lore originally composed of three volumes of ships' logs, together forming a sizeable tome.[1] It was written in the Year of the Gauntlet, 1369 DR by an anonymous author.[2]

It contained much information on maritime law, tradition, and superstition; helpful tips and homilies; stories short and long pertaining to the Sea of Fallen Stars, as well as local sayings and curses.[1] The library at Candlekeep was known to have a copy of all three volumes in their collection.[2]
