A wonderful real life series of adventures at sea by a great story teller. Many parts were simply gripping and as a whole the book stands up well to caomparison with works of the great writers of the sea such as Peter Freuchens and Joseph Conrad (exalted company!)
The levels of human endurance and raw courage displayed by the officers and crew are almosrt beyond belief, and yet the book rings of truth in every page.
A great read!
This sounds like a book that's right up my husbands alley. Some people think that the "non-fiction" section is all just "reference" books. I say.....shame on you.....go browse around in there, REAL TRUE stories. Take a gander why don't you!
This book is a must read for anyone who is interested in
- Canadian History, Atlantic Canada, The Atlantic Ocean, Real Men, Action, Ships, etc, etc....
Be prepared to believe it all fiction, If Hollywood made a movie of it no one would believe it is NOT Fiction...
True stories about real men in situations and actions that defy belief in this modern age...
