Sea History 138 - Spring 2012

Page 33


tells the story of Lynx, a ship with two lives that sailed in two different centuries. Woodson K. Woods, an entrepreneur a nd lifelo ng sailor, brought the 1812 Lynx back to life as a modern privateer in 2001. The first square-topsail, wooden schooner built in Rockport, Maine, since 1885, Lynx sails America's coasts, teaching young people about the craft of sailing a tall ship and about the Warofl812. J. Dennis Robinson captures the drama in the true story of the swift vessel, its stealthy origins, its heroic missions, and its ama zing reappearance. An informative and moving "sea yarn" for a contemporary audience, this engaging account, accompanied by over 190 color photographs, maps, and paintings, is for every reader, sailors and landlubbers alike.


"The War of1812 privateer Lynx comes to life brilliantly in America's Privateer... an inspiring book." -PETER STANFORD

President Emeritus National Maritime Historical Society
