"Gulf Stream North is a remarkable sea yarn about a white captain and Negro crew aboard the Moona Waa Togue, a sodden old menhadener, who search the sea for their livelihood and battle the sea for their lives. A landmark book, early on sunk in the literary sea, it is now raised to sail again." - from the dj.

"And the late Samuel Hopkins Adams, who knew the Gulf Stream area about which Earl Conrad wrote, said, 'It is to my mind a masterpiece, a classic'"- - from the dj.
