The magnificent age of sail lives again in this distinctive collection of ready-to-color American sailing ships.  In a pictorial display spanning over 200 years of maritime history, artist and avid sailor Peter Copeland meticulously depicts vessels ranging from small, shallow-draft topsail schooners of Colonial times and early sail-and-steam powered ships to modern reconstructions of classic 17th century vessels. This book contains 45, exciting, ready-to-color illustrations. These accurately rendered drawings have informative captions that describe each ship, including dates, types of vessel, construction, historical background, distinguishing characteristics, brief anecdotes, and more.
