Editorial Reviews

Daily Record

This book should be compulsory reading in every Maryland high school.

Baltimore Sun - Gilbert Byron

This is quite a yarn, and Ken Brooks, who began his own exploration of the Chesapeake country at the tender age of ten as a cabin boy on the 48-foot yawl Natalie, has written with authenticity and vigor.
