"You can't trust anything he would have written." Gumshoe historians Andrew Buckley and Matt Griffin turn the corner on the trail of the Columbia Expedition and John Kendrick. A ship built just prior to the Revolution on the South Shore. Her junior partner, an old sloop built on the North Shore. Hints at a background in slavery, but the vessel truly carrying the story is in the hands of young man with divided loyalties and a chip on his shoulder.
