This non-fiction book is a must-read for anyone who wants to become a seafarer. Published in 1922, it should appeal to all modern-day readers who love sea literature. Says author Lehmann Hisey in his Preface: "My purpose in relating this experience in the Merchant Marine is to show the fellow who craves sea life and adventure that these things are not all he may think them to be. My service extended over a period of five months and this little tale gives the actual daily life and work, neither softened nor exaggerated, but told exactly as it occurred. I have endeavored to show not only the routine, discipline and associates, but the effect of these on one's character and ideals." (File size: 53.9 MiB, PDF, 269 pages in sequence)
