Description: American clipper ships were swift, handsome vessels of uniquely American design. These ships completely dominated the open seas in the mid-nineteenth century, delivering their cargos 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. This volume is the first of two. Contains A-L alphabetical listing of clipper ships, with details of size, owners, voyages, legends and tragedies associated with many of the vessels. A second volume continues the alphabetical listing from M-Z. Softcover.
