Work Description

In this book, the largely unknown and frequently forgotten Nathaniel Bowditch comes to life in a brilliant portrait of his life. Readable for all ages, the book begins as the Bowditch family moves back to Salem, Massachusetts. Carry On, Mr. Bowditch follows Nathaniel Bowditch as he grows older and steadily more brilliant in mathematics and sciences, teaching himself by candle light and doing amazing things like learning Latin by himself. This book follows Bowditch's life through from a very young child to a fully grown and aging man. Although written like a novel and can read like fiction, the events of his life as represented in this book are accurate.
