Call of the sea

Posted: December 11, 2011 in Reviews, Sea stories, Shanghaied

“Many years ago as a teen-ager I had the great opportunity  to learn to sail with a program called Sea Scouts. Reading Shanghaied by David Paul Collins brings back good – and sometimes not so good – memories of those days. Based on a true story the narrative kept me hooked from the first page to the last.  While I was never shanghaied, I can fully relate to Jack’s adventure on an African freighter in the 1950′s.  Shanghaied is a great read and I recommend it to anyone who loves the sea.”  Paul Cosby
