Overview

Who can love the sea and its ships and remain unmoved by the tale of its taming? Great Republic, Sovereign of the Seas, Lightning, Star of Empire and Westward Ho--these names ring from an era when windships were queen and sail was king. But the most famous, the one that captured the heart of the nation, was Flying Cloud.

"The gripping and authentic yarn of a race 'round the Horn onboard the greatest clipper ever built--Flying Cloud." (Publisher's Source)

This is a tough read because the subject matter is so unfamiliar. But it is worth the work to slog through it. The greatest of the clipper ships is built and makes its maiden voyage around Cape Horn to win a speed record. Sadly, the clipper was soon eclipsed by the steamer which was not dependent on wind. The glory days of the clipper are remembered in this story told from the point of view of an old salt.
