Lawrence E. Babits"Durham’s outstanding research ties together disparate threads in this seafaring tale of Civil War blockade running. Durham artfully reconstructs the storm-plagued voyage of a Nova Scotia sailing vessel that ran the blockade into the Georgia sounds and was then trapped. While most blockade-running narratives center on major ports, Durham opens our eyes to the smaller scale importing that was also vital to the Confederacy’s survive. His exceptional knowledge of the Georgia sounds, coupled with a willingness to travel far afield, provides a personalized journey through time to experience an original account of Civil War naval history."
