Run the Blockade
Fourteen-year-old Henry Severn is ship's boy and lookout on the Banshee. This new British ship is designed to carry good through the line of Yankee ships blocking trade between the Confederate states and Britain during the Civil War. On their many runs through the blockade, Henry and the rest of the crew risk discovery and destruction by the U.S. Navy.
Everyone is counting on Henry to spot the enemy ships. Will Henry's keen eyes save the Banshee from capture?
Young readers will enjoy experiencing the high-seas adventure of ruining the blockade, as popular author and noted Civil War historical G. Clifton Wisler draws from historical accounts to tell this exciting story of America's past.
