CHRONICLES OF A CHEST
Robert W. Feuer
Henry Sutton's 17 schooners, largely engaged in the coal trade between Chesapeake ports and New England, were some of the last under-sail carriers on the U.S. East Coast, and occasionally traded foreign. Their adventures are recounted here in lively text and well-documented facts and figures by maritime historian Robert W. Feuer. This is a glimpse into a lost world of transportation, entreprenurial spirit, sea adventure, and more hazard than a romance.
