Summary
"Mary Morton Cowan visits Mac's boat, the Bowdoin, as tenderly as she would call on a beloved family member. She watched Mac set sail in it for the Arctic in 1954. Mary's grandfather and Mac were friends. Mary's family's factory made sledges for Mac in 1913. Mary is an avid sailor herself. Add these facts together, and readers have not only a fascinating story about a courageous character, they also have a story told from from heart. Mary writes from lifelong personal experience and love of her subject. It shows in her depth of understanding about Mac and her admiration and respect for what he did. Biography fans and adventure seekers will love Captain Mac." --web
