"Flying Cloud" tells the story of how in 1851 navigator Eleanor Creesy traveled from New York to San Francisco in only 89 days on a clipper ship. Shaw's attention to detail gives readers both an intimate chronicle of this extraordinary journey and a uniquely dramatic window into American life in the mid-19th century. Charts, maps and photos.
