A review:

I read this book thinking it would be another dull sea going saga but much to my surprise it was a fantastic read. This story will grip you from the early adventures of this seventeen year old deck apprentice and hold you in his grip as he relates the world of seamen as he grows into manhood. His love affair with the beautiful Japanese girl Hiroko will squeeze your heart. A great read don't miss it.
