Event Type

One of the U.S. Coast Guard’s most celebrated officers….the story of an ex-slave who stood for American law and justice along a 30,000 mile coastline of the Alaskan frontier, from San Francisco’s Barbary Coast to the ice fields of the Arctic.

The epic of an African-American, an ex-slave, who became the “ruler of the Arctic Sea”, confronting Hell Ships and shanghaied sailors, rum-runners and poachers, famine and epidemics. Throughout his career, Mike Healy had secrets to hide and personal demons that would prove to be his deadliest challenge.
