Americas_Privateer_Book_Cover_small2AMERICA’S PRIVATEER tells the story of Lynx, a rakish ship with two lives that span two centuries. This new book also tells the dramatic tale of The Forgotten War for readers of all ages. Packed with almost 200 photographs and illustrations, AMERICA’S PRIVATEER uncovers the search for speed under sail by master shipbuilders at Fells Point, MD. Then it goes behind the scenes during the building of the $3 million square top-sail wooden schooner, the first launched at Rockport, Maine since 1855.

Woodson K. Woods, an entrepreneur and lifelong sailor brought the modern Lynx to life in 2001. Today Lynx sails the American coast, from its home on the Pacific, to its current bicentennial tour of the Atlantic. Lynx is teaching young and old the forgotten tales of America’s privateers, the building of ships, and the way of the sea.
