150 FETHERLING, Douglas Running Away to Sea : Round the World on a Tramp Freighter. First Edition in dustjacket
McClelland & Stewart, Toronto, 1998, ISBN:0771031157 
FETHERLING, Douglas. Running Away to Sea : Round the World on a Tramp Freighter. (Toronto) : McClelland & Stewart, (1998). First Printing. Pp (10),1-245,(1). A few illustrations in the text. 8vo, red cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Douglas George Fetherling (b. January 1, 1949, Wheeling, West Virginia). "At a low point in his life, the prolific Canadian writer Douglas Fetherling sought to clear his head by taking the kind of trip that many of us dream about - going round the world on one of the last of the tramp freighters. The four-month voyage carried him (and a handful of other travellers) some thirty thousand nautical miles, from Europe via the Panama Canal to the South Pacific, with a future as fragile as its past is romantic. There the ship, a converted Russian ice-breaker renamed The Pride of Great Yarmouth, traded at some of the most fabled - and some of the most disreputable - ports in the southern hemisphere. The return voyage, by way of Singapore, Indonesia, the Indian Ocean, and Suez, was just as memorable. Written with dash, colour, and droll humour, Fetherlings narrative is peopled by a rich cast of characters, from the Foreign Legionnaires of French Polynesia to the raskol gangs of Papua New Guinea. Most memorable perhaps are the men and women who continue to follow the millennia-old life of the sea. This is the world of Ordinaries and Able-Bodied Seamen, but also of hopeful young officer cadets to say nothing of, in this particular instance, a temperamental cook, a computer genius with a nose-ring, and a young Russian woman who believes herself the reincarnation of Marilyn Monroe. Fetherling captures the reality of life aboard a working cargo ship the boredom, the seclusion, the differences of nationality and culture that isolation and cramped quarters seem to exaggerate. But he also describes how the routine of loneliness or tranquillity is punctuated by moments of near-panic shipboard fires, furniture-smashing storms, even a brush with pirates in the Strait of Malacca. Running Away to Sea is literary travel-writing in the grand old tradition." - from the dj, which also carries a high recommendation from Bill Bryson. Chapters : 1. Taking Ship; 2. Panama; 3. Somewhere in the Pacific; 4. Polynesia; 5. Shipmates; 6. Suva to Santo; 7. Papua New Guinea: Rats and Butterfies; 8. Papua New Guinea: Volcanoes and Raskols; 9. Bandar, Singapore, and a Brush with Pirates; 10. The Long Way Back Home; 11. South Pacific Sunset. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 25.00
