Acerca del libro
John Kane is an Officer in the US Navy in 1858. Having just ran a Navy ship aground in Barbados chasing slavers, Kane surmises his career is over. But the Italian unification is fomenting, and the US Navy needs a leader in the New York Navy Yard to build a new vessel and sail for Sicily to assist Giuseppe Garibaldi in the fight. Commander Palmer convinces the Navy brass to give Kane a second chance. Dottie, John Kane’s girlfriend, worries she could lose him in a second mishap at sea. Palmer’s wife and the women weave the flags for the men, while Otis and other supporters build USS Iroquois in the bustling Yard. With his trusty dog, Wolf, at his side, Officer Kane takes compass in hand to lead the men. While Naval intelligence works with English counterparts and the Church to unify the common purpose, the Yard community comes together with the President of the United States in a gallant affair to see the men off. At sea, Kane keeps Dottie close to heart while he leads the men. The fight is intense. Kane learns the power of men and women working together and what it means for the legacy of the Yard and country.
