KIRKUS REVIEW

Then and now John Paul Jones is a controversial figure and though this must pass with a word of warning to conservatives- as it treats of his dubious paternity, his involvements in scandals of mutiny, and his incredible achievements and mistreatments at the hands of some of the founding fathers- offer fine reading. His character is sympathetically drawn by a boy who grew up in the hard school of Jones' erratic career, and the book is of definite appeal to both armchair and professional sailors.
