it was amazing

My great great grandfather William G Dana was a historically famous sea captain. My father grew up riding horses on the Dana Rancho Nipomo which is now a CA historical touring site near San Luis Obispo. The Dana family was a large & loving family w many stories to tell of CA. Whereas William Gs personality was not like the main characters at all Richard Henry learned alot about seamanship from working on his ship. Read the book & explore Dana Ca history. Adds some historical insights for fans
