In this firsthand account of the life aboard the ships of the Great Lakes, Mark Thompson weaves together the threads of a story that relives a centuries-old tradition. The logbooks that crewmembers kept date back long before Christopher Columbus made his crossing of the Atlantic in 1492. Thompson began his logbook after he reported for duty aboard the Calcite II at Fraser Shipyard in Superior, Wisconsin, for the 1996 shipping season. A Sailor's Logbook is the first such book to chronicle a sailor's life at the end of the 20th century. Not just a detailing of weather, cargo and crew relations, this is also an account of the daily lives of a diverse group of crewmembers as they shard their sailing knowledge, "sea stories, " and the many memories that accompany the pictures. Includes several black-and-white photographs.
