Live Yankees: The Sewalls and Their Ships

Live Yankees: The Sewalls and Their Ships


"This stunning voyage through a century of maritime globalization welds sailing-ship seafaring, building, and owning into a sumptuous exploration of the Maine-coast capitalism, modernization, and determination which kept great sailing vessels afloat and profitable far into the steamship era." -- John R. Stilgoe, Harvard University For nearly a century members of the Sewall family built and managed a fleet of more that one hundred merchant vessels, mostly stout deepwater square-riggers. No family has been more intimately associated with the history of the city of Bath, then among the most productive shipbuilding communities of any size in the world. Written by W.H. Bunting.
