What's it like to crew on a merchant ship? How dangerous is it? What's the work like? My man McPhee goes along for the 42-day ride with a second mate on the S.S. Stella Lykes and hears the many stories of disaster, stupidity, greed, generosity and courage.

McPhee's writing is direct, accessible, packed with facts and well organized; one learns much.
