On the other hand, here is a vocational book with factual content, and with no sugar-coating. The story of a boy's voyage around the world on a full-rigged ship, which paints no glowing picture of a seaman's life, on ship or on shore. The facts are sound enough -- villiers has shipped before the mast, he has shipped as captain, he has broken in young ones and taken cubs who needed a drubbing to the place where they got it. This is more fiction than most of his -- but first rate even so.
