From the Inside Flap:

"An absorbing story . . . Packs in a stunning amount of information." -- South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Ft. Lauderdale

"Fair Seafarer" is a saga of the sea and the modern mariners who sail it, told from a woman's unique perspective. It also is the story of a gutsy woman and her adventures in the still-mostly-male world of the U.S. Merchant Marine. Nancy Allen takes us through the stormy North Pacific, to the remote Aleutian Islands, and on to the teeming harbors of East Asia and the South China Sea, as she travels with her new husband, Chief Mate on an 845-foot container ship. She tells with no holds barred of the life of today's men and women merchant seamen, makes informed connections with the bygone days of the clipper ships, and examines the problems our merchant navy faces in today's competitive global market.

"This wonderful book will captivate you with the romance of the sea and jolt you with the reality of the toughness of a seafarer's life. It will tease you with scenes from exotic lands and people, but also hammer home the daily pressures of outperforming your competition. I couldn't put it down and recommend it to anyone who has an interest in the sea and in the modern Merchant Marine." -- John Gaughan, former U.S. Maritime Administrator

About the Author:

Nancy Allen, who lives in Ft. Pierce, Florida, married the chief Mate of an 845 foot containship and went to sea with him. She has been a Contributing Editor of Motor Boating and Sailing magazine and a Field Editor of Motor Boat Magazine.
