All Sail Set
This is the story of the greatest ship ever built: the clipper, Flying Cloud.
Set in the age when great sailing ships ruled the ocean, this book tells of
Flying Cloud's maiden voyage around Cape Horn, which set a world record.
It is also the story of Enoch Thatcher, a young man who loves the Flying Cloud.
He watches her come to life and then he sails on her maiden voyage; he crosses the
Line and rounds the Horn for the first time with her.
This is a wonderful, fast-paced
story. Readers who can read Ransome by themselves will have no trouble enjoying All Sail Set.
