9781590130186: Motoo Eetee: Shipwrecked at the Edge of the World

Four men swim for their lives from the senseless wreck of the American sealing ship Dove: Thomas, a headstrong young sailor; Harrison, the affable, inventive ship's carpenter; Mr. Morgen, the Dove's pedestrian first mate; and the aging Captain Tobit—a short-sighted bungler. Battered, empty-handed, and stripped naked, they wash up on an isolated and uncharted yet bountiful volcanic island rich with all they need to survive and thrive. But almost imediately, the two crewmen realize that, for their fanatical captain, hierarchy outstrips human need.

From the Publisher:

With a seamless blend of literature and adventure, Motoo Eetee marks the debut of an important new writer in I.C. Rogers. After a hitch in Korea as a sapper, he spent years in the construction trades, raising a family and driving big rigs. Researching for Motoo Eetee, he backpacked through the fjords, lakes, rivers and nearly deserted coasts of New Zealand, where "it rained and rained and rained (and rained). Streams had to be crossed on walk wires." A resident of Salinas, California, Rogers says, "I live near the Odd Fellows cemetery and salute when I pass the Steinbeck plot."

About the Author:

Irv C. Rogers was born in Los Angeles, California, on Bastille Day 1929, and served as a sapper during the Korean War, then came home to work in construction and the theater and at the wheel of big rigs. He lives in Salinas, California.

Book Description McBooks Press. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Motoo Eetee: Shipwrecked at the Edge of the World, Irv C. Rogers, With a seamless blend of literature and adventure, 'Motoo Eetee' marks the debut of an important new writer. Swimming for their lives from the senseless wreck of the American sealing ship Dove, four men escape -- Thomas, a headstrong young sailor; Harrison, the affable, inventive ship's carpenter; Mr Morgen, the Dove's pedestrian first mate; and the ageing Captain Tobit -- bungling, short-sighted, and fanatical. Bruised and naked, they find themselves cast away on an uncharted, uninhabited island in the far South Pacific where the bounty and beauty of all that surrounds them are at odds with the old structures of shipboard life. Within the new order dictated by nature and the struggle to secure the simplest food, clothing, and shelter, the old divisions between officers and men, especially between Thomas and Tobit, nevertheless grow deeper. Which voice prevails in the end -- nature or human habit -- is the essence of this book's gripping climax. Bookseller Inventory # B9781590130186
