Hardback Summary:
The book, as the title indicates, is about USS Constitution. However, it does not cover just the career of the ship and times in which it served, but includes sections telling of shipboard life and giving details on sailing such as navigation. There is a glossary of nautical terms in the appendix as well as a collection of nautical sayings and lore. This is a good book to learn about shipboard life and ship terminology while reading the story of USS Constitution.
