Book Synopsis
Bohemian Skipper is a collection of stories that I have compiled after having spent more than three quarters of a century on three of our country's most famous rivers, the James and Appomattox in Virginia and the Niagara River that straddles New York an Ontario, Canada. This book is unique in two ways. first, each story stands alone, yet all 28 chapters will come together to tell a much larger and richer story. And secondly, as a child from age four years I would ride the tugboats that my dad skippered and learn many trades and crafts from old world shipwrights and fender makers. And in later years I would learn that my playground had been the town of Henricus, America's second English settlement in the new world, and that during the Indian Massacre of 1622 it would be destroyed and all of its inhabitants would be slaughtered. However, in the 1940's and 50's Dutch Gap Island "belonged to me" and like my dad who captained tugs from its shores, I too would become a true Bohemian Skipper
