Based on an actual historical incident that occurred in 1851. In the novel, due to disease and disaster, the captain's wife takes command of a ship sailing from Honolulu to the Oregon coast, traversing the Columbia River bar, and up the river to the frontier town of Portland. Stevenson wrote the novel after researching the original incident, maritime medicine, ship navigation, and the lives and experiences of ship captains' wives at the Smithsonian, the NIH at Bethesda, and the G.W. Blunt White maritime library in Connecticut, and consulting with other experts and historians.
