Summary
Elisha Ely Morgan is a young farm boy who has witnessed firsthand the terror of the War of 1812. Ely's two older brothers have both left their pastoral boyhoods to seek manhood through sailing. With the news that one brother is lost at sea and the other is believed to be dead, Ely spends nearly every penny he has to become a sailor on a square-rigged ship, on a route from New York to London-- a route he hopes will lead to his vanished brother, Abraham. Learning the brutal trade of a sailor, Ely takes quickly to sea-life. Following a series of cryptic clues regarding his brother's fate, Ely becomes entrenched in a mystery deeper than he can imagine. As he feels himself drawing closer to an answer, Ely climbs the ranks to become a captain, experiences romance, faces a mutiny, meets Queen Victoria, and befriends historical legends such as Charles Dickens in his raucous quest
