This book is about Tristan Jones childhood in Wales and boyhood in 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, and of a young boy who wanted to experience it all. Sailing Inland & Offshore The boats he sailed have all come home now...there is no one who can write so well about them. Books and Bookmen
