Sailor's Hope provides a moving account of a multi-faceted man, tracking his engagement with the extraordinary changes occurring in the Atlantic and Pacific Worlds in the decades after the American and French Revolutions. William Cooper was born in poverty in industrializing Scotland. Without any formal education, he worked his way up through the British merchant marine to the position of captain on voyages linking Britain with Iberia and North America.

Rusty Bittermann is a professor in the Department of History at St Thomas University and author of Rural Protest on Prince Edward Island: From British Colonization to the Escheat Movement, and co-author (with Margaret McCallum) of Lady Landlords of Prince Edward Island: Imperial Dreams and the Defence of Property.
