Descrizione

Sailing with Hunters

"Charlie tells it like it was," Jim Porter, Fleetwood Marine Heritage Trust.

Dedicated to two colleagues of the author, wireless operators who went down with their ships, this is a true sea story told first hand by a wireless operator sailing to the Arctic Circle with the Hull fishing fleet.

This fascinating tale takes you, the reader, back into the 1950's and lets you experience, first hand, what it was like to be a fisherman in those days.

You will find yourself absorbed into the life and times, wit, courage and stoicism of the many characters who sailed in the old fashioned coal-burners.

Maybe, most important of all is the postscript, where the present day descendants of the people in the story contact the author by e-mail to tell him of the affect the events he relates had on their lives. "This," as the author says, "completes the picture and makes it into a poignant whole."

This is not just about Hull fishermen. What happens in this book applies to all fishermen wherever they are in the world. .

"Fascinating Story," Dave Buckley, Trawler Historian, Fleetwood Weekly News.

Sea Stories by the same author: 'The Under Manager' and 'The Devil's Register' Both available on Smashwords.
