Lots of details of boat-making and sailing back in the early 1900's. I usually love time travel stories, this was pretty much a mild "like; not in the love range. Nice descriptions of life in a New England coastal town though, and occasional appearances by historical figures. Read full review

A great story. I really like back-in-time books. This was an interesting one, in that it wasn't a major sci fi story. The time travel is very subtle. Illustrated by the author. Read full review
