Tancook Schooners: An Island and Its Boats
Wayne O'Leary provides detailed descriptions of how the schooners were conceived and perfected, and paints a vivid picture of life on Tancook from the late eighteenth century into the twentieth century. He shows how national and international developments affected the lives of the Tancook Islanders and the character and uses of the vessel for which they became famous. He also includes many stories about individual builders and a wealth of photographs and drawings. The Tancook Schooners will be of interest to maritime enthusiasts as well as maritime, economic, and social historians.
