'Lovely She Goes' is a cry that belongs to the age of sail. It can still be heard when a trawler leaves port for distant waters, it is made to the man at the wheel when the ship is free to pass lock gates to the open seas. After that there is no turning back. This tremendous, brutally true account of twenty men and one ship against the northern seas was written by a trawlerman. Distant water trawling is Britain's most dangerous job. The death rate is four times that of miners and one hundred times that of factory workers; its the hardest ife a man can have. Size: Octavo (standard book size).
