Anyone who enjoys the life stories of the WWII generation will like this book. It is the story of a man who had two dreams. His first dream was to play the fiddle. After seeing his first movie at age 9 about a ship in a storm, he conceived a second dream -- going to sea. He looks back with humor at the hardships on the farm during the Depression, his years at sea, and at life's mishaps and detours on his way to the Halls of Fame. Older readers will enjoy his humor and his determination to live life his way. Younger readers may be inspired to start thinking about their own dreams.
