Only slight wear to pictorial card covers ; A bright, solid book ; B&W Photographs; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 184 pages; Women mariners work on boats of all sizes: water taxis, fish boats, tugs, ice breakers, ferries, coast guard patrol boats, charter yachts, coastal freight boats and deep sea freighters. They are deckhands and engineer. Such unconventional work is the stuff of sagas, yet few people know about careers or lives or the part they play in marine industries. Here over 110 women from ages 8 to 97 tell the real stories of their lives in their own words, stories about getting that first job, dealing with harassment of all kinds, financing boats, working as a team, commanding crews, developing relationships, and maintaining marriages -- and learning to be waterwise. Their stories are gripping, unapologetic, courageous and salty.
