I've enjoyed this Elsie book, like I have several books before it in this series.

Many more historical events are discussed and landmarks are visited. The main new interest of the story is the yacht that Captain Raymond provides for the family. Lots of entertainment come from their new voyages.

The end of the book has left me anticipating the next story!

Another pleasant Elsie book. It seemed a little slow, though, for me. There's a lot of storytelling about Revolutionary War events, so there's several,pages of dialogue as a character (usually the Captain) relates the history of the war. The ending was short and sweet, too.

I really like this series although it's a bit Calvinistic in its theology, and it's a bit uber-Christian; i.e., the Christians are really, really good and the non-Christians are really, really bad.

This one was more history than anything else, which is okay, if you care about naval battles and the like. I don't.

A true history lesson in itself!
