J. Wilkinson’s The Narrative of a Blockade Runner is true picture of the life of a blockade runner on the high seas, in the Confederacy and in Texas during the American Civil War. Told with humor and astute observation of the triumphs and failures of the rebellion. Daring-do, wheeling and dealing, profiteers and patriots, and adventure on the high seas.
Lightly cocked, light foxing, light chipping, else v.g. Bright!
