His career and exploits are told here, in one of the most exciting periods of U. S. history. “John Paul Jones was a man of deeds, of quick impulse, and, above all, a man of enterprise. He believed with Poor Richard, that if you wanted anything done, the best way is to do it yourself.... The purpose of this book is to deal largely with the incidents in the life of Paul Jones so far as they have helped to make the naval history of our country and to show how intimately associated is his name with that which we prize above all else in this world— Liberty.” “The engagement between the Bon Homme Richard, commanded by John Paul Jones, and the Serapis under Commodore Richard Pearson, is regarded as the most desperately fought battle in naval warfare.” This illustrated eBook edition of the original 1902 classic has been carefully scanned, formatted and edited for your reading and historical pleasure.
