These ships completely dominated the open seas in the mid-nineteenth century, delivering their cargoes faster and more efficiently than any other wind-propelled ships afloat. Read about the real-life exploits of the captains and crews who courageously battled the elements, pirates and European competitors to win valuable U.S. markets around the world. M-Z alphabetical listing of clipper ships, with details of size, owners, voyages, legends and tragedies associated with many of the vessels. Continuation of Volume 1. Softcover.
