Lovers of quality will cherish this reprint of Godine's 1983 edition. While bound in paper covers and offset printed the book shows what a fine publisher can do with the modern options (that are so often exploited to spew ugly trash). The topic is another example of fine crafting: the Gloucester fishing schooners, "fastest, leanest, and most challenging working boats ever built" (from the cover). Garland's writing and the assembled photos, charts & drawings do justice to the memory of these noble machines. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
