"A stirring tale of life along the stormswept coasts of Newfoundland, full of love of the sea and of the people who go down to the sea in ships. The untimely death of a cod fisherman leaves the family with no money and an undetermined indebtedness on the schooner and equipment. The eldest son, helped by old Uncle Jerry as his First Mate, undertakes the trip to the fishing banks and the resulting story is a thrilling one full of the tang of the sea. Storms, ice-floes, schooner racing, treacherous fogs, mysterious castaways, all go to make up an authentic account of life among the fishermen alternately stalked by tragedy and crowned with success. A tale for both young and old. - from the dust-jacket. Vg in torn dj. 30.00
