Racers of the Deep: The Yankee Clippers and Bluenose Clippers on the Australian Run 1852-1869

Yankee clippers like the Lightning, run by Captain James Forbes and his bosun James Hodge, carried many thousands of new settlers to Australia over numerous voyages. With an artist’s eye for detail and a natural writer’s easy hand, Ralph Neale tells of perilous voyages, hardy characters and fine tall ships. Superb colour plates by Neale.
