One of the few written works about the remarkable times of sloop-rigged sailing on the Hudson River. It contains a well informed and atmospheric historical sketch of the packet an market sloops of the 19th century supplemented by a record with their names, and personal reminiscences of Captain George Woolsey, who was a notable sloop-sailing master in these times. Enriched by several photographs and illustrations, contemporary readers will discover a very fascinating chapter in the history of New York.

Reprint of the original edition from 1908.
