Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Henry Kittredge recounts the words and deeds of hundreds of Cape Cod skippers. Beginning with the Colonial coasters, Kittredge gives a vibrant chronicle of the voyages, cargoes, and battles. Perhaps more importantly, he paints a captivating portrait of the Cape Cod men who sailed their vessels around the world. Readers come to know the humor, piety, vigor, and resourcefulness with which these rare men carried their cargoes, braving hurricanes, fevers, and pirates all along the way.

About the Author

Henry C. Kittredge was the author of three classic Cape Cod books, Shipmasters of Cape Cod, Cape Cod: Its People and Their History, and Mooncussers of Cape Cod.
