An absolutely enthralling story of Nathaniel Bowditch, who went from an indentured servant as a teenager to one of the most well-known and brilliant men who changed the course of navigation (pun intended).
Loved this book. It is a great book about self-education, drive and determination. I read it to my homeschooled girls ages 12,9,7 but all kids would enjoy it. I still like reminding my girls to "sail by ash breeze."
