About the Author:

Ernest Imhoff is a former editor of the Baltimore Sun and volunteer on the John W. Brown. This is volume 2 of his two-volume set on the history of the ship as told through her volunteers.

Review:

Imhoff's genius as an author lies not in his storytelling expertise for, after all, he is a professional journalist of long standing, but rather his prose relies on the charm, warmth, humanity and color he infuses into a nuts-and-bolts text that is at once captivating, inspiring and informative. He lets you peek into the insights of the many former crewmen and volunteer workers he interiewed to create this sprawling mosaic of human dedication, honor and sacrifice. More than anything else, the author takes you inside the emotions of those who brought a creaking old freighter back to life as he profoundly asks why do so many devote so much of their precious time and energy to an inanimate object like a Liberty ship. The answer may well astound you, as it did this reviewer. --Sea Classics, April 2007
