Book Brochure 2

The replica ship Half Moon is the unsurpassed symbol of the deep connections between the Dutch and the American peoples. The book, richly illustrated with hundreds of photographs and other images, includes the stories of the three Half Moons, the 17th century original, the 1909 replica, and the current ship, now in its 25th year. The book celebrates and documents the thousands of people who have visited her, sailed on her, and donated their time and treasure.

Thematically organized in 23 chapters the exploits of the current Half Moon are the emphasis of the book such as the construction and launching at the Snow Dock in Albany, its early voyages from North Carolina to Michigan, the many Voyages of Discovery that followed and the epic events the ship encountered.
