About this title


When Captain Abram Kean, doyen of our ice hunters and northern seamen, invited me to write a foreword to his book, I felt profoundly honoured, for we have been friends for forty years, and I know what he has consistently stood for among our northern seafaring people: true seamanship, courage, unselfishness, and genuine love for his fellow men. To the American public and the world “Captain Bob” has introduced those yeomen of our fisheries, the Bartlett family. I am hoping this book will introduce another than whom none are better loved and trusted in the North. Somehow it may, I hope, lead to a better appreciation of the character developed in what is regarded by some as a “humble calling.” There are many such yeomen in the North. It was to men of such calling Christ Himself entrusted the ineffable message He came to earth to reveal. A gale of wind in the winter in the North Atlantic when your sheets are frozen solid, your canvas blown to ribbons, and you have no way of knowing where you are in a heavily laden small schooner with all your own and perhaps your best loved one aboard off an ill-charted coast makes one feel humble in the presence of the unseen—and yet all that is manly and noble is challenged. “They that go down to the sea in ships” don’t often write books; when they do I advise all my friends, especially professional storywriters, to read them. I heartily recommend Captain Kean’s book to every one of them. From the foreword by Sir Wilfred Grenfell
