Description: In 1851, at the height of the California gold rush, the huge square sails of a three-masted clipper ship caught the wind in New York harbor, speeding the Flying Cloud on the beginning of a 16,000-mile voyage to San Francisco. Ahead of her lay shoals, calms, and a fierce winter blizzard that would strike off Cape Horn and almost sink her. But she would make the trip in a record-setting 89 days -- thanks to the skills of Eleanor Creesy, an ingenious woman who served as her navigator.

In Flying Cloud, David W. Shaw draws on letters, diaries, and original charts to vividly recreate that dramatic journey, one punctuated not only by storms but also sabotage, insubordination, and potentially fatal damage to the ship's mainmast. He skillfully captures the bitter reality of life at sea in the 19th century -- and the compelling symbolism of this ship and her groundbreaking navigator.
