Item Description...
After finding a way to teach the ship's crew members to understand navigation, Nat, a self-taught mathematician and astronomer in eighteenth-century Salem, Massachusetts, writes down his explanations and compiles them into "The American Practical Navigator," also known as the "Sailors' Bible."A fictionalized look at Nathaniel Bowditch and how his knowledge of mathematics, astronomy, ships, and the sea led him to become a brilliant navigator.

Publishers Description
Readers today are still fascinated by “Nat,” an eighteenth-century nautical wonder and mathematical wizard. Nathaniel Bowditch grew up in a sailor's world—Salem in the early days, when tall-masted ships from foreign ports crowded the wharves. But Nat didn't promise to have the makings of a sailor; he was too physically small. Nat may have been slight of build, but no one guessed that he had the persistence and determination to master sea navigation in the days when men sailed only by “log, lead, and lookout.” Nat's long hours of study and observation, collected in his famous work, The American Practical Navigator (also known as the “Sailors' Bible”), stunned the sailing community and made him a New England hero.

Mathamatics By Hard Work  Sep 4, 2007

This book is about a boy named Nathanial Bowditch. No one likes him and he goes to bad school with a mean tearcher. When Nathanal Bowditch is about 10, his teacher found out he was good at math and advanced him to a higher math class where everone respected him. Even though he was he was a indentured servant and he couldn't leave the person's house, he still found the time to study Math,Latin,French.
Then he put all his knowledge together. He also devloped many ways to navigate a ship that we still use today! I liked the book because it is good historical fiction and the author uses good clear nautical terms. Its good to read a book where a boy suceeds in by using his brain, not by muscles or magic, like modern day books.
A true American genius!  Aug 22, 2007
Everyone should know about Nathaniel Bowditch. A true pioneer in his day and age, his books are still in use. A man you can look up to; kids should have heroes like this today. An incredibly well spent life, and a very well written book to honor him!
Unforgettable  May 12, 2007
I remember reading this book as a child; first, being forced to read it for a book report and then finding I could not wait to turn the page! None of the reviews I have read mentioned the ending, guess they didn't want to give away the best part of the book! I have just ordered it for my 9 year old daughter, I hope she enjoys it as much as I did, but, after I read it again first!
A Math Lover's Classic  Jan 21, 2007
This book was inspiring and worth being read again and again. I have given many away as gifts.
Great book  Oct 19, 2006
I remember my mom made me read this story when I was homeschooled. Carry on Mr Bowditch was a book that I actully enjoyed reading when I was homeschooled. Mr Bowditch is an inspiration. He had the attitude that he could do anything he could put his mind too.

I recently saw this book on sale at the library and immediatly snatched it up. I read it for the second time. Which is something I rarely do.
And I told my mom that I wish I had the determination that this kid had.

I gave this book 4 stars because this book became depressing at times. His mother died, his grandmother, his father(I am assuming died because he was never mentioned after awhile), his sister, his brother in law his two brothers and his first wife.

So you see all this death is in the book. But this is a nice book and I enjoyed it.
