Then, in August of 1865, a British ship revealed the shocking truth to the men of Shenandoah: the war had been over for months, and they were now being hunted as pirates. What ensued was an incredible 15,000-mile journey to the one place the crew hoped to find sanctuary, only to discover that their fate would depend on how they answered a single question. Wondrously evocative, Last Flag Down is a riveting story of courage, nobility, and rare comradeship forged in the quest to achieve the impossible.
"Baldwin and Powers recount their tale in a lively, evocative style and may be forgiven for being overly fond of their hero." (Publishers Weekly)
What members say
Would you try another book from John Baldwin, and Ron Powers and/or Ron McLarty?
McLarty is an ace among the narrators that I commonly listen to, his read on Empire Falls was superb
Any additional comments?
Overall, the book was OK, but the final part of the book was exceptional. It was toward the end of the book that the true traits of the main characters seemed to resonate the loudest. Book did motivate me to read more on this vessel and the sailors that manned it.
