really liked it
Read in January, 2008

A very informed book in its descriptions of sailing. This novel takes place at the time of the American Revolution and the eponymous pilot is John Paul Jones, the father of the American Navy. A lot of the action takes place on land (in Northumberland, England.) The language of the time slows you down a bit, but it's a great story.
