The legend of the American clipper ship endures not only as one of the most stirring portraits of adventure on the open sea but also as one of the most celebrated manifestations of a growing nation's spirit of entrepreneurship. Swift, handsome vessels of uniquely American design, these ships completely dominated the open seas in the mid-nineteenth century, delivering their cargos faster and more efficiently than any other wind-propelled ships afloat.
