A master seaman, shipbuilder, and maritime historian charts an anecdotal, highly personal course through America's nautical history. Written in an informal, entertaining style, it features nearly 140 photographs, prints, and plans depicting ships from the 18th through 20th centuries: quoddy boats, fishing schooners, clippers, packet ships, frigates, and other vessels.
