Inhaltsangabe: During the American Civil War, Jacques ?Webfoot? Boudreaux, a coal heaver on the Union ironclad Nahant, rescues a six year old slave girl from the Savannah River. As the ship moves north, in battles afloat and ashore, he begins to realize the grip she has on his heart. This is the story of Webfoot, Little Bit, Sarah and a new breed of ship?..a ship with no sails, an ironclad propelled by coal fired steam engines. It is a tale of battles with blockade runners, raids on plantations, and storms at sea. The story unfolds over a six month period?.January to July 1863----and culminates in the New York Draft Riots. It is also the story of a young white man, a young black woman who fall in love in a time of great danger and of the child who loves them both. The novel is based on years of research into the naval aspect of the Civil War, ironclad ships, the horror of slavery, and the escaped slaves and bluejacket sailors who found each other on salt water in the year 1863.
