Includes bibliographical references.

This story has been compiled from individual recollections as well as letters and other documents, both official and private. The personal recollections and contributions of the Ward family, as well as interviews with surviving members of Jimmy's crew, provided a sound basis for the manuscript enabling the inclusion of quotes and first-hand impressions from those who knew him well. The inclusion of Jimmy's own words (and those of his immediate family) was vital. Original documents and quotes have been included wherever possible.
