Her third book, Captain Henry Green: A Whaler, is about an ordinary whaler who led an extraordinary life. Henry lives in the whaling town of Sag Harbor where almost everyone is involved in some way in the industry. Henry, like so many, is intrigued by the lure of the hunt for whales and the draw of sailing to faraway places. He works his way up to captain and has a long career as a whaler and adventurer. Along the way he is involved in the slave ship the Amistad and the Gold Rush.
