During the Civil War, Union forces blockade the port of Charleston so the Confederate army seeks a way to attack the Yankee ships. George Dixon is part of the group of men given the task of creating and building the "fish boat," a submarine. The H.L. Hunley ultimately sets out on its mission to sink Yankee ships, but fails to return, its whereabouts unknown. For more than 100 years, the mystery of the Hunley and the fate of its crew stayed buried. The Story of the H.L. Hunley and Queenie's Coin recounts the story of the "fish boat," through its creation and mission, to its ultimate recovery and final voyage home. Fran Hawk and her husband live in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, near several Hunley landmarks. For the past ten years, she has enjoyed her job as a children's librarian in her local school district. Currently she works in a small alternative high school for at-risk students. She writes a weekly children's book review column for the Charleston Post and Courier and writes freelance articles for magazines. Dan Nance has published dozens of extraordinary and provocative images of the Civil War. Agraduate of the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, Dan's work has graced numerous book and magazine covers and is widely respected by both scholars and historical interpreters alike. Dan has works in the permanent collection of the South Carolina State Museum. He lives with his family in Charlotte, North Carolina.

I hope you know he was having se<_>x with me, and trying to have se<_>x with Mayne or whatever her name is, he is just a fu<_>ckboy wanting attention.

"I didn't think you'd forget!" He points at himself. "I'm Don, and I'm trying to kill you!" He assaults them with a battle axe. "Die!"
*walks in, shocked to see Minx tied to the bed* "Oh, what the heck?"
She waits, wearing a thin white bra and a white th<_>ong. She lies on a smooth glass table, legs spread slightly. Over her underclothes she wears a thin lace gown.
I love the story of the Hunley. I am an amatur historian and a licened Tour Guide for the City of Charleston and know about the story and the events leading up to the Hunley. This book did a good job of relaying the important information to the overall story. However, once the Hunley disapears, the book ceases to be a children's story and changes into an informational book about the wreck recovery. Then it morphs one last time in stating what the Civil war was really about. It wasn't that it was bad, it was just very jarring to go from one style to another. The information in the book is spot on, the photographs of the wreck recovery are amazing. I bought this book for my Nephew who will read it when he is a little older, but otherwise, it is a neat book. An odd little book, but a neat one.
