REVIEW è PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ó Linda Greenlaw Linda Greenlaw Ó 0 FREE READ FREE DOWNLOAD The Hungry Ocean: A Swordboat Captain's Journey From leaving the dock to returning Not trying to compete with Junger s operatic tale of death on the high seas Greenlaw deals with stormy personalities rather than with bad weather She rounds out the story with her gimlet eyed description of a captain s biggest headache after nature itself the crew Racism drug use baffling illnesses these are all elements of a day journey for six people crammed aboard a ft boat designed less for human comfort than to carry thepounds orof fish it will eventually take on But Greenlaw picks her sailors carefully and through her own example inspires a fierce loyalty among the menAsuch as the one who extracted his own abscessed tooth rather than return to shore In my experience she notes very few men are willing to pull their own teeth Greenlaw s narrative should foster an abiding respect in anyone who has tossed a swordfish steak on the grill and it is certain to induce jaw dropping admiration among personnel managers everywhere Photos not seen by PW Copyright Reed Business Information Inc
