Under a Yellow Sky : A tale of the sea and coming of age Paperback / softback


Under a Yellow Sky paints a canvas of life aboard a Merchant Navy ship in the early 1970s.

Simon, a dreamer who steps into this different world, uncovers much of the magic of the sea, although also encounters brutality, dizzying hard work and frightening bouts of violence.

From the rigidity of naval college, to the debauchery of the East, this is a vivid portrait of a world now disappeared.

A well-written book that will appeal to all who are interested in ships and shipping, modern and maritime history, and those who enjoy well-told traveler's tales of fascinating people and places.
