KIRKUS REVIEW

A Cooks' tour of famous ports that pays a bonus of information as well with many of the general principles behind dock making and ship tending. From Liverpool, the harbor that was started against great odds and which still undergoes constant dredgings, all the way around to Hong Kong, we are given sharp birds'-eye-views of the slips, the big piers, the tugs, the liners and the economic functions of several well known harbors. And besides the facts, there's the excitement any ship lover feels when he must go down to the sea again.
