Rate this:
A Steady Trade is the story of a childhood in Whales and a boyhood on the arduous sail-in-trade of Northern Europe before World War II. It is a charming, nostalgic reminiscence of a lost world, a childhood in a Welsh countryside still in the 19th century, of a time when chantey-singing sailors fought the weather to deliver bricks, coal, even animals around the world, and of a young boy who wanted to experience it all.
