Dorothy was the first of a continuing line of fine ships constructed at Newport News Shipbuilding. The colorful history of the vessel built in the early 1800s is presented here through a lively narrative and interviews with the shipyard craftsmen who have been involved since 1974 in the painstaking restoration of the tug. Approximately one hundred photographs and illustrations in color, sepia and black and white recreate the adventures of the Dorothy through the 1976 rechristening and dedication ceremonies at Newport News Shipbuilding -- where she stands on permanent display as a symbol of the dedication and pride of skilled craftsmen.
