Caleb Reynolds

American Seafarer

by Baker, Emily Reynolds



Caleb Reynolds (1771-1858) was an American sea captain who sailed around Cape Horn, traded with the king of Hawaii, and visited the mutineers from the HMS Bounty on Pitcairn Island. In this biography, Caleb Reynolds' descendant, Emily Reynolds Baker, uses his letters to his wife, ships' logs, poetry, and other papers to reconstruct Reynolds' eventful life.
