Description

It is 1812 and America has declared war on Britain. The American ship Olive Branch is waylaid by a British cruiser. Captain Dorman is killed, and his crew is taken prisoner, including the captain's pretty and strong-willed daughter, Corunna. Widely recognized for his careful attention to historical details, Kenneth Roberts portrays the bravery of American seamen, their sufferings in the mist-shrouded walls of Dartmoor Prison, the invention of the Gangway Pendulum, and the sailors' dangerous and dramatic escape.
