Originally published in 1931, Smuggler’s Luck recounts the adventures of a Nantucket boy, Timothy Pinkham, during the American Revolution. Nantucket in those lean and hazardous years lay between the devil and the deep blue sea, with the British navy ready with ruthless retaliations against the islanders for any favor shown the Patriot cause. The Patriots, on the other hand, threatened to cut off supplies to the islanders if they sided with the British.
