About Joe Follansbee

I've loved science fiction ever since I wrote my first Star Trek fanfic story at age 12. Now, I'm pursuing my dream of writing science fiction novels, but with a modern emphasis on our planet's changing climate. I'm working on a series of novels titled Carbon Run, Restoration, and Antarctica 2261. I hope to publish these by 2017.

I've already published a young adult novel, titled Bet: Stowaway Daughter, based on my research into the history of the schooner Wawona. I've told the ship's story in Shipbuilders, Sea Captains, and Fishermen: The Story of the Schooner Wawona, and the ebook Blowing Out the Stink: Life on a Lumber and Cod Schooner 1897-1947.

My interest in maritime history spurred me to publish two travel guides: The Fyddeye Guide to America's Maritime History, and The Fyddeye Guide to America's Lighthouses. I've also written three books on streaming media.

I live in Seattle with my wife, a chicken, and a weakness for anything with too much sugar.

Review by: trailmaintainer on Oct. 25, 2014 :
For anyone interested in the history of sailing ships, this book is a good read. The author is a working journalist and knows his craft, and the book is well-researched and carefully written. Sailors interested in the last days of the coasting schooners will find this especially enjoyable.
