KIRKUS REVIEW

England's Poet Laureate goes back to his early teens and shares his memories of apprenticeship on the Conway, training ship for England's merchant fleet, in 1888. In meticulous detail, he tells of a form of hazing, of a new language to learn, of desciline that smacks of even earlier days at sea. Yet throughout, you feel his love of the sea and ships. A book for all to whom ships are of interest.
