This story was imagined and written by the author, who had a passion for national patriotism. Philip Nolan became the man without a country. He was imagined to have damned is country and was condemned in a military court martial to live the rest of his life without a country. He lived his life on the sea, never seeing the United States again. While it is doubtful whether any nation's navy would carry out so heartbreaking a penalty, and completely fictitious, the career of Hale runs so close to known events that, at least for a time, this book was taken a an historical episode. The binding is gray cloth with gilt lettering and a soldier on the front right corner. Slipcased, the cream box is fine but for minor damp stains at the bottom on the front and up to midway on the back. Did not affect the book at all. 10 1/4" high, 55 pages with full-color illustrations. Printed on heavy paper, the Heritage Club Sandglass is included. Book does not appear to have been read. ; Color Illustrations; 4to 10" - 13" tall; 55 pages
