I have only started reading "Resolute" tonight so I am only 3 chapters in. I have to say it was difficult for me to put the book down long enough to participate a bit in these conversations (*smile*)! It has been an excellent read, thus far, and I have learned an incredible amount in just 50 pages. I am a relatively new student to maritime history, so I am devouring everything I can on the subject. I am especially interested in the late 19th century and early 20th century as it pertains to maritime history so this book fits in perfectly with some of the others in the genre I have been reading recently.
I confess I had never heard of the HMS Resolute before I stumbled across this book club last night, so I am thoroughly enjoying learning all about this wonder, and at the same time learning more about the British maritime explorations of the 19th century. The first fact that has amazed me in my readings is that of the ultimate fate of the ship. I can't believe it became the president's desk in the Oval Office! I can't wait to start telling everyone I know that one (*wink*).
