"In the North, Mike Healy is better known than the President of the United States."
The New York Sun


THE ODYSSEY OF CAPTAIN HEALY

This is the remarkable story of one of the US Coast Guard's most celebrated officers. The turbulent story of an African-American, Healy, an ex-slave, represented law and order on the Alaska frontier. Patrolling the Arctic, Healy confronted Hell Ships and shanghaied sailors. He out ran rum-runners, poachers and killers. But personal demons would prove to be Captain Healy's most formidable challenge.

"A prime example of
just how fascinating
history can be when told well".
(The Video Librarian)
