Not as good as the first volume, even though it is really the remainder of the original story.

By the end I had become quite offended by the horrible caricatures of the black slaves' speech and equally so in the constant reinforcement of the concept of slavery as an honourable condition! But maybe this was Cooper 's idea of satirising the South's attitude (I doubt it though). One must remember that this is a book of its own age and try to understand it in that light.

But I feel that the author was becoming bored himself by the end - the narrative ends in a rush, almost as if he was trying to close it off to meet his publishers deadline!

5.0 out of 5 stars Early American Sea adventure 8 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although written in the style of the period ,hich apppears somewhat stilted,you get used to it. The casual reference to slaves and the undoubted importance of social standingof the time (late 1700's- 1804) is interesting and educational from this standpoint.This is an absorbing social and seafaring adventure which I had difficulty in putting down and follows on from the earlier and equally absorbing earlier book by this author

4.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed both books "Afloat and Ashore" and the Sequel 3 July 2014

I enjoyed both books "Afloat and Ashore" and the Sequel. You have to read both books because the first one leaves you hanging.
I wonder when these books where written as his thoughts on the government would agree with mine today. Good story.
5.0 out of 5 stars The sequel brings it all together! 6 May 2014

Read the first Wallingford book, and was totally bummed with the way it ended. What I didn't know was that there was this sequel out there. What a story! I can recommend these two books to anyone who enjoys post Revolutionary War Naval encounters, mixed with the human side of the people were involved.
5.0 out of 5 stars Adventurous, loving, suspenseful 27 Aug 2013
By Ann M. Gahagen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved all of the adventures of the main character and his honesty, being able to follow the development of the other characters' living experiences, and learning about nautical history with technical detail about crossing the seas, pirates, wars, climates, and the sign of the times. Very enjoyable, but incredibly long story which I loved. I was looking for a story that I could read for a very long time. Would recommend to a dedicated reader.
