KIRKUS REVIEW

James Dugan up from under water with Cousteau spins out this shipshape biography of Hans Isbrandtsen, the pioneer of NY's Steamship Row. A Horatio Alger he-man, he fought everything that came along: the Departments of Defense and Commerce, hiang's blockade, the editors of the Times and the Trib. A magazine-style closeup that carries over the force of an extraordinary man.
