One of the few men who could crack a tale of the sea wide open and make you feel and taste the spray, the late Tristan Jones tells of his boyhood at sea. Some of the good folks who have done research on Jones have found a good deal to be sceptical about when it comes to his writings. Even his boyhood home in Wales has been drawn into suspicion by some. As for me and perhaps you too, who cares! This man could hoist a tale of the sea with the same ease with which he handled a flying jib. Here he gives an account of his young life that somehow simply rings true. There are no grand revelations in here, no soul searching. None are needed and none are found. Like virtually all of Tristan Jones books, you'll find this one a treat. Not his best, but a good read and like most of his books...a grand adventure.
