KIRKUS REVIEW

This book, briefly and assiduously chronicles the story of America's famed clipper ships in the 1840's and '50's. With a deftness of description and feeling it tells of the ships themselves, of the men who planned, built and sailed them, of their runs, and stops. An excellent narrative of America's most exciting days at sea.
