Sea Travels: Memoirs of a 20th Century Master Mariner Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Born in Nome, Alaska - J. Holger Christensen, joins that exclusive fraternity of master mariners – skilled seamen who are licensed to operate a vessel on any of the world’s oceans regardless of tonnage. Raised on Bainbridge Island, Washington, he sails to distant lands as mariner and ship captain in World War II.  Holger always returns to the North Pacific where he challenges the unforgiving waters of the Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska. In this memoir, he tells remarkable, genuine sea stories in gripping detail.  Above all else he loves the sea — a passion acquired from his father, who left Denmark at age thirteen aboard one of the world's last full-rigged sailing ships.
