The Last American Sailors: A Wild Ride in the Modern Merchant Marine

The Last American Sailors: A Wild Ride in the Modern Merchant Marine Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A sadistic captain puts his crew on edge. A young officer has a breakdown in a near-collision. A sailor jumps to the bottom of the sea. "The Last American Sailors" recounts one man's decade in a misunderstood industry--the merchant marine, a fleet with a glorious past and an uncertain future. If "On the Road" met "The Perfect Storm," we would have "The Last American Sailors," the definitive travelogue of a merchant seaman and an encompassing look into the mysterious world of merchant shipping.
