Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Published in hardcover in 1965 and long out of print, this lively and accurate adventure tale is now available in paperback for the first time. As a fictionalized account of life on the Chesapeake Bay at the turn of the century, "Run to the Lee" has the same appeal to all ages as Gilbert Byron's own beloved novel, "The Lord's Oysters".

Synopsis:

Tells the story of John Talbot, a schooner captain in Chesapeake Bay, in the days when freighters sailed in the Bay area.
