James Sprute served on blockade runners during the war, so he had detailed knowledge of various wrecks and derelicts – mostly blockade runners.
In this volume he shares interesting tales of wrecks and rescues in the treacherous waters around the North Carolina coast; including Hatteras and Cape Fear. An entertaining and uncommon volume.
Excellent condition with very lt. wear; lt. fox; quite scarce.
