A Steady Trade: A Boyhood at Sea by Tristan Jones

A Steady Trade is the story of a childhood in Wales & a boyhood on the arduous sail-in-trade of northern Europe before World War II. It is a charming, nostalgic reminiscence of a lost world, of childhood in a Welsh countryside still in the 19th century, of a time when chantey-singing sailors fought the weather to deliver bricks, coal, even animals around the world, & of a young boy who wanted to experience it all. Peopled with unforgettable characters from Tristans sailor mentor Goodness Gracious Jenkins to the ageless Tansy Lee, captain of Second Apprentice, the book is filled with the sights, sounds, & smells of the sea, an unbelievably real evocation of a remarkable coming of age.
