Crew Culture: New Zealand Seafarers under Sail and Steam: New Zealand and Seafarers under Sail and Steam (Out of Print)

Author(s): Neill Atkinson

Nautical | New Zealand

For the first time, here is a book that looks at the work and lives of merchant seafarers - often described in their own words. The harsh realities of shipboard life, the colourful lore and language of the sea, the struggle for control and the rise of unionism, the lively world of the waterfront, and the unique character of seafarers' crew culture are all explored in vivid detail, with over a hundred illustrations.
