Lost No Longer!

by catamount (WorldCat user published 2011-07-30) Excellent Permalink

This very readable book brings the world of large coastal schooners and the men who once sailed them back to life once again.  Very interesting stories with lots of historical information presented to the reader in a  palatable fashion.  GREAT!!
