"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. (Hardcover)
