Well researched addition to the maritime history of New England. For maritime history buffs, this book includes tales of the building of some of America's greatest ships -- Nightingale, Kearsarge, Constitution, and more -- and how their stories are connected to the Hanscom family. To quote Robert Hanscom, the Hanscom family genealogist: "Richard Winslow has done a superb job of capturing the stories of the people I am proud to call my family."
