KIRKUS REVIEW

West Coast appeal, first and foremost -- but with strikes in the air and a timely interest, should find a widening market....A waterfront strike -- based on last summer's Pacific coast tie-up -- greets the return of the S S Pamona to Seattle, embroils her crew, and variously effects the lives of the crew and the officers. Cross sectioning this group, you get the rise and fall of the strike, the alignment of classes, the variation in attitude. Well done, essentially masculine in appeal, sympathetic in presentation.
