Summary Carry On Mr Bowditch characters ↠ Carry On Mr Bowditch 105 Nly by “log lead and lookout” Nat’s long hours of study and observation collected in his famous work The American Practical Navigator also known as the “Sailors’ Bible” stunned the sailing community and made him a New England hero. I enjoyed this well enough and can absolutely imagine child me rereading it with pleasureOf course I do wish the author s note as to sources were included but the interesting Newbery acceptance speech in Newbery and Caldecott Medal Books 1956 1965 With Acceptance Papers Biographies Related Material Chiefly from the Horn Book Magazine does admit to it being a fictionized biography because despite extensive research little could be found by Latham about Bowditch She does make him out to be larger than life but then that was the fashion for these inspirational boys books of the 1940s and 50s apparently as evidenced by other Newbery winners She also humanizes him a bit and there are bits of both insight and humor mixed in with the glorious adventure so it s a readable book It does reflect the casual racism of the time against for example Malays but when we get to know individuals like Lupe we learn to respect them Overall I could see using this in a classroom if only because the man is less well known than most heroes known to schoolchildren

I was surprised when I first learned about this biography that had managed the rare feat for a nonfiction book of winning the Newbery Medal but after reading it I wholeheartedly support the committee s decision The enthralling story of Nat Bowditch bursts at the seams with stark emotion So often along the path down which the reader is led the steps are heartbreaking the ordeals Nat Bowditch endured in his career and personal life were both staggering and inspiring No biography other than Cornelia Meigs s Invincible Louisa ever was so profoundly moving in my view I was emotionally invested in Mr Bowditch s story every step of the way Carry On Mr Bowditch is a beautiful book I love very much and will remember always
