Following the Union's blockade of the South's waterways, the survival of the Confederacy depended on a handful of heroes-daring harbor pilots and ship captains-who would risk their lives and cargo to outrun Union ships and guns. Their tales of high adventure and derring-do became legendary. Masters of the Shoals brings to life these brave pilots of Cape Fear who saved the South from gradual starvation.
