Read by LibriVox Volunteers

LibriVox volunteers bring you 15 recordings of My Brigantine by James Fenimore Cooper.

This was the Weekly Poetry project for December 26, 2021.

-----

After a stint on a commercial voyage, James Fenimore Cooper served in the U.S. Navy as a midshipman, where he learned the technology of managing sailing vessels which greatly influenced many of his novels and other writings. Cooper, beloved though he is as a novelist, hasn't drawn much attention for his poetry. Here is one of his pieces expressing his appreciation for a beautiful ship, taken from his 1830 novel "The Water-Witch". - Summary by TriciaG (0 hr 18 min)
