DUNCAN, Sylvia and Peter. The Sea My Stead : The Personal Story of Captain Donald Sorrell . London: Robert Hale, 1960. First UK Printing. Pp. (10),11-192, + 8 p. of plates. Illustrated. 8vo, blue cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "In February 1953, Captain Donald Sorrell, the pint-sized sailor whofirst went to sea as a fifteen-year-old apprentice in a windjammer, made m aritime history. He docked the gigantic Queen Mary in New York harbour without the aid of tugs. Next day he completed this brilliant feat of seamanship by undocking his ship, again without tugs. Donald Sorrell learned his navigation from old sea captains, and used modern inventions to supplement, but never replace, the traditional methods. So he became perhaps the most reliable Ship's Master this generation has known. In his ten years as Captain of Cunarders he never damaged a ship, and was never late on schedule, whatever the weather conditions. His friendly personality made him as popular with his crew as with his passengers. So when Cunard launched the luxury liner Caronia to capture the American tourist trade after the war, Captain Sorrell was appointed Master with the responsible job of taking his ship into remote harbours all over the world and entertaining wealthy Americans with the tact of a diplomat. Captain Sorrell's tragic death occurred just as he had completed the notes for this book, which tells of his whole life at sea from his first voyage round Cape Horn to his last, bringing the Queen Mary back to Southampton from New York." - from the dj.
