The Yankee Fleet

Item Details

In "The Yankee Fleet: Maritime New England in the Age of Sail," James C. Johnston Jr. recounts the famous tales that have given the Northeast such a storied maritime tradition. From the stern Puritan fathers to Francisco Ruiz, New England's last known pirate, Johnston canvasses the accounts of the men and women who fished, fought, explored and marauded in sailing craft over the region s fickle yet fertile waters. With occasional forays into the nautical history of the Chesapeake and trans-Atlantic realms, "The Yankee Fleet" offers a colorful and offbeat exploration of Yankee sailors and the world they made.
