THE ANNIE MORAN by Edith Thacher Hurd


Email this review


To anyone who knows the harbor of New York, the name Moran means a whole fleet of tugboats, so it is no surprise to find that this is a story about the oldest tugboat of them all, a tug almost in the discard and allowed to pull only little freighters and barges. She has a chance to prove her prowess, however -- and her stern bitt pulls loose, betraying her age. But at the last, a burning freighter is towed out of danger and The Annie Moran gets the credit she deserves. Clement Hurd has made nice pictures with real character and humor.
