Product description

Review

"Wonderful… Clare’s account of his journeys with the officers and crews of container ships is gripping and stomach-churning in equal measure" (Daily Telegraph)

"[A] beautifully written account of seafaring life" (Ian Critchley Sunday Times)

"A lyrical, heartfelt but eye-opening chronicle... Both romantic and realistic, written from the heart but crafted with a seafarer’s “passionate precision”, [Clare’s] book will steer you into the new year on a course that may deepen your grasp both of that world, and of ourselves" (Boyd Tonkin Independent)

"Stupendous and extraordinarily exciting... What Clare demonstrates, even beyond his undoubted gifts as writer, is his basic humanity. I read his wonderful book with gratitude for his insight – but also with increased admiration for the men to whom we owe almost everything in our comfortable and secure lives" (Philip Hoare Times Higher Education)

"Rich and dense, full of old sea-dog stories, with barely a word wasted, it’s a triumph of quiet artistry" (Marcus Berkmann Daily Mail)

Book Description

Acclaimed nature writer Horatio Clare travels the great oceans on cargo ships, and witnesses the collision of two temperaments: man and the sea
