Product Details

Praise

“Discover the true story behind the man who coined the phrase full speed ahead…Boasting maps, portraits, and some solid narrative verse, the book will be of interest to kids passionate about 19th-century naval warfare…(and) is a helpful resource for educators and librarians looking to fill out their Civil War collections….ably describes one man’s contribution to U.S. naval history.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Borden’s free-verse text reads quickly and smoothly, drawing readers into [David] Farragut’s story…The use of quotes within the narrative is quite effective, and the illustrations, showcased in a handsome, large-format volume, include portraits, paintings of ships at sea, documents, and photos…A well-researched biographical account of remarkable man.”Booklist
