Item description for The Red Rover by James Fenimore Cooper...

As Wilder approached the "Foul Anchor," he beheld every symptom of some powerful excitement existing within the bosom of the hitherto peaceful town. More than half the women, and perhaps one fourth of all the men, within a reasonable proximity to that well known inn, were assembled before its door, listening to one of the former sex, who declaimed in tones so shrill and penetrating as not to leave the proprietors of the curious and attentive countenances, in the outer circle of the crowd, the smallest rational ground of complaint on the score of impartiality.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Red Rover?

Terrific insight into nautical practice of the late 18th century  May 6, 2008
If you can get past Cooper's verbose and stilted prose, this is a great love letter to the skilled mariners who manned the decks during the Golden Age of Sail. Probably a full quarter of the book is devoted to depicting the moment-by-moment changes in rigging and tactics for both fight and flight in fickle weather. And that stands alone as the sole basis on which I recommend this book.

The tale is a fairly formulaic and romantic account of what amounts to just over a fortnight in the life of a gentleman pirate who commands a noble if motley crew, and the dashing young officer of the British Navy who is assigned to apprehend him in the Americas. Predictably, the protagonist finds more to admire than despise in his quarry, and the generosity & civility of the Red Rover is shown to exceed that of many commisioned sailors in service to the Crown.
