Bartrud was born in Norway and found himself in a variety of exciting and dangerous experiences as he climbed the chain of command, finally reaching Captain. Among the disasters was the sinking of the SS Dakota en route from Seattle to Yokohama, when it hit the shoals near the Nojimasaki Lighthouse. Dope fiends appear in this memoir, along with vignettes in coastal China, Alaska and the Inland Passage, and much more.

Includes a photo or two of Bartrud's last house, in West Seattle near Endolyne Joe's. This copy is inscribed to his next-door neighbor. Dust jacket is now protected in a clear, removable, archival sleeve.
