KIRKUS REVIEW

Being a veteran at both writing and sailing makes Mr. Floherty turn out meaty material about the United States Coast Guard. Illustrated with his own photographs the chapters flow along firmly over the wealth of the author's own experiences,-meeting at times storms as well as smooth seas, remembering dangerous rescues, recounting lore and know- how from weather ships and the first use of the ""flying machine"" on to helping Alaskan Eskimos. For the nautically minded, splendid fare.
