Concord, CA: Quixotic Press, 2000. 317p., wraps.
"A lively personal memoir about leaving backwoods Maine during the Depression with a high school education, no job prospects but with plenty of youthful moxie. Told with vivid realism and gentle humor, readers will follow the author's adventures in radical Trotskyist politics, and his life as a merchant seaman sailing in sub-infested wartime waters. They will get an inside view of organizing a political party branch, finding love, marriage and family, and working at dangerous trades to keep his family afloat." - rear wrap.
