A gem of a read, 16 Nov. 2012
Just finished A Master Mariners Tale and discovered a gem of a read. An insight into life at sea but with an amazing tale of spying, politics, high sea adventure and the odd public house thrown in that steers it away from being just any old maritime history book.
Read on and discover from the authors point of view the coincidence, extraordinary research and some unique assistance that made the writing of this book possible. In my opinion this made the book all the more fascinating. I look forward to more books from Fred Cooper.
