By the renowned maritime historian John G. Bunker dventure, romance, infamy, intrigue, disaster, wealth, poverty, luxury . . . the sweep of history, the story of the Port of New York, the past and the future of a great city shape the saga of John G. Bunker's Harbor and Haven. Chapter by chapter, stories abound: The tale of the valiant Turtle and the puzzle in the name of the Clermont; the explorers, Hudson and da Verrazano; the slaves, Cargo and Portuguese; the pirate villains and the privateer heroes, Kidd, Mason, Burgess; the shipbuilders, Bell, Bergh, and Fulton; the immigrants, Astor and Carnegie. Throughout Harbor and Haven, John Bunker celebrates schooners, steamers, barks, brigantines, containerships, and the Port of New York itself, or, as Robert Juet wrote in his journal aboard the Half Moof!, "a very good harbor for all winds." Exhaustively detailed and lavishly printed, Harbor and Haven gives the general reader, the student, and the maritime historian a vivid record in dramatic prose and extraordinary illustrations both in black and white and color - of the Port of New York's "melting-pot"; the milieu of immigrants, pirates, slavers, privateers, and shipbuilders; the advent of steam and paddlewheels, packets and elegant cruise ships; and the tragedies of wars and the disasters of the harbor and of the sea.
