This book is a story of the sea, and of a coast either iron bound, savage and rock strewn, or of empty wide flung salt marsh where the wildfowl flight at dusk and dawn. It is a story, mainly taking place between dusks and dawns, of great ships and small ships, of men struggling against Sea and Coast, for decency, for life, or only for money, big money, caring not who is hurt or corrupted in the process; or of a very feminine woman who chooses to play a man's part, nevertheless. -- front fold over blurb Size: 12mo (Small Hardcover).
