tells the story of Lynx, a ship with two lives that sailed in two different centuries. Woodson K. Woods, an entrepreneur and lifelong 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 War of1812. J. Dennis Robinson captures the drama in the true story of the swift vessel, it s stealthy origins, its heroic missions, and its amazing reappearance. An infor mative a nd moving "sea yarn" fo r a contemporary audience, this engaging account, accompanied by over 190 color photographs, maps, and pai ntings, is for every reader, sailors and landlubbers alike.

"The War of1812 privateer Lynx comes to life brilliantly in America's Privateer... an inspiring book." - P ET E R STANFOR D
