"From the pages of this book black smoke streams out of the tall stacks of such stalwart ships as the Senator, Redondo, Valencia, Victoria, Catherine Sudden, Admiral Watson and Yucatan. Their steamings and stranding, their strange voyages, their last ports--all are pictured by a profusion of photographs, many never before published, and by fascinating tales and characterizations." "Recounted are exciting stories of rate wars, rivalries and races with personal exploits of men like Dynamite Johnny O'Brien who rigged sails on a wrecked steamer and took her off a deadly reef; Capt. Louis Nopander who shared his bridge with a madman; Capt. E. B. Wood who was murdered by pirates; 3d Mate Thompson of the Admiral Line who became a human foghorn; Chief Engineer Ben Maitland of the Governor who hung his cap over the steam gauge when his ship was challenged by the Beaver. Such is the heady fare Pacific Coastal Liners provides, spiced by a nostalgic display of steamer placards and posters.
