Radio Interview with Leslie Compton, Author of “Dearest Minnie, a sailor’s story” on August 10, 2017 on JPR (Jefferson Public Radio, Oregon) by Geoffrey Riley, News Director and Jefferson Exchange Host.
In 1906, Teddy Roosevelt ordered a large fleet of US warships to circumnavigate the globe. The fleet, painted white as a symbol of peace, became known as The White Fleet. Author Leslie Compton recreates this legendary voyage as a historical love story using postcards sent by a White Fleet sailor.
