Not as exciting as its predecessor, Below the Roaring '40's, but in its very detachment from the problems of today, it has a unique value as escape reading. An intimate picture of a trawlerman's life around Iceland, achieved through shipping as a deck hand, he shares his experiences, -- sights, sounds, smells, and he shares too his knowledge of the men he lived with. He sees everything -- and he knows supremely well how to share his experiences and thoughts with others.
