About this title


Reading Tunnell’s Boys, I was on a ship’s bridge for the first time again; only the persons’ names had changed. The story catches the true spirit of piloting, picturing life aboard sailing pilot boats, incredible feats of seamanship, and vivid descriptions of the vessels themselves. Tony Junker captures the essence of a much overlooked part of our nation’s maritime life and heritage.
Captain Michael J. Linton, President
Pilots’ Association for the Bay & River Delaware

For one who loves both sailing and the history of Quaker Philadelphia, Tunnell’s Boys brings alive a time, a place, and a culture which I have lived in through my imagination. An exciting and absorbing human drama which kept me turning the pages.
Margaret Hope Bacon
Author of The Quiet Rebels: The Story of the Quakers in America

With pro-war hysteria rising around him, a young pacifist man with a history of brawling embodies the yearnings and contradictions of those around him. Like Tony Junker’s adventurous protagonist, I found myself challenged anew: when to fight and by what means? When to question cynically my government’s posture and when to join my neighbor’s true hopes for democracy? How to express my passion and still listen for the inner voice? This book is for anyone who loves peace and finds “integrity” as much a verb as a noun.
George Lakey
Author of Powerful Peacemaking

About the Author:

Tony Junker, a Quaker, lives in Philadelphia where he practices architecture. He spends what time he can sailing his gaff-rigged wooden sloop, Friar Tuck, cruising the Maine coast.
