WRITTEN BY: Jackson Kuhl
PUBLISHED: June, 2011
This book is the carefully-researched account of true-life American Revolutionary war hero, Samuel Smedley, who captained the waters off the Atlantic coast terrorizing British merchants and war vessels alike. Author, Jackson Kuhl, is commended for presenting factual data for this chapter of history in a prose that is easy to read and relate. Smedley faced more than his share of devastating trials, yet persevered from each and continued service for the political cause that he so fervently believed in. Filled with adventure, compassion, and intrigue, this book reads almost as an epic action-romance, rather than the real life struggles of a single man. At just a bit over 100 pages, it's enough to satisfy the interest of any history buff without suffocating the reader in exhausting detail. Highly recommended for content and style.
