177 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w drawings by Gerard Williams, plus b&w photographs, maps. "(B)orn on April 30, 1906, (Ernest Hartling) grew up in his grandparents' house, overlooking Spanish Ship Bay, Nova Scotia. Entranced by the sight of the billowing white sails of Grandfather's schooner, he embarked on a lifelong fascination with ships and the sea. As a small boy, when he was allowed to steer his father's ship, he knew he was born to be a sailor. In this book, (he) takes us on a voyage through a life crammed with adventure, colour, and excitement: his eyewitness account of the Great Halifax Explosion; crossing the Atlantic at the age of twelve as an ordinary seaman; striking out alone at fourteen in pursuit of his dream of a seafaring life; but that is just the beginning. He sailed the high seas on numerous ships to countless ports and, while still very young, became master of a ship. In Halifax, during the Second World War, Ernest took on the dangerous job of harbour pilot, guiding convoys safely out to sea. Relishing the challenge, he remained a pilot for twenty-nine years. Illuminating every page is the character of Ernest Hartling, who retired after more than fifty years at sea, only to return to it as master of the 'Bluenose II' - the crowning achievement of his life." Dust jacket has minor rubbing - mainly on rear panel.
