I bought this book at a yard sale to decorate my cigar room. And yes, I know how that sentence sounds: "Buying books as decoration? For a cigar room?? Nautical themed??? YOU USED TO BE PUNK ROCK, SEAN!" But I've always been into the US Revolution and nautical stuff, so now I'm reading it. And it's great! Written by Hope S. Rider, it's about the 1st naval vessel in the US. And it's a 1st edition signed by the author.
But what interests me the most is that it's the ONLY book she's ever written. How can someone be so good at writing and quit after one book?
