"Off the remoat Murmanski coast, well within the Arctic Circle, beyond North Cape, and 1,500 miles from their home ports are the fishing-grounds of the distant-water trawlers. Although Hugh Popham describes what to fishermen was a routine voyage -- it passed without collision or stranding, fire or mutiny or arrest for poaching -- most readers will find the strange and isolated life anything but routine. The author has a sharp ear for the rhythms of the trawlerman's northern speech; and when gales or the dearth of fish keep the skipper and his crew idle, they talk of other voyages in other ships, of fire and storm, of brushes with Icelandic gunboats and Norwegian submarines, and the black Arctic winter." - from the dustjacket. Name inkedto flyleaf, slight spine roll, else very good in spine nicked, edgeworn, u nclipped dustjacket. 60.00
