Description
In the mid-19th century American clipper ships were the "greyhounds of the sea," built for speed to bring back valuable cargoes like tea, spices, and silk from exotic seaports. None of those American clippers survived, except for one: the Maine-built Snow Squall, whose ignominious fate was to become part of a jetty in the Falkland Islands. With accounts from naval archaeologist David Switzer, this fascinating illustrated history by Nicholas Dean documents his Snow Squall Project, an unusual volunteer expedition that, in the aftermath of the Falkland War, managed to bring the ship's distinctive knife-edge bow section home to Portland. Dean also pieces together the Snow Squall's colorful history and the era of the clippers.
