Contents of this overview of the heyday of U.S-East Indies trading include an introduction to late eighteenth century life in Salem, a profile of America's first millionaire, Elias Hasket Derby, and the story of the bitter battle for control of commerce. Set sail on the Grand Turk and read selections from the log of the captain of the Hercules. Fold a paper Chinese pagoda and bake some spicy cupcakes to serve with green tea.
