Armed with curiosity and a desire to piece together the story of the world's only seven-masted schooner, Tom Hall spent years researching, diving on the Lawson wreck and interviewing the relatives of those involved in the rescue efforts. The result of his work is the most complete account of the T.W. Lawson's story, ranging from her building and launch in Massachusetts to her fated wreck off the Scilly Isles.
