Synopsis: Through this captain's-eye-view acocunt, readers will feel they are helping a harbor tug boat cope with river currents and dangerous rock walls as captain and crew tow a ship filled with grain to her dock. Timothy Burke, a working captain of a Great Lakes harbor tug, relates his story with the help of his own dramatic full-color photos.

From School Library Journal: Grade 1-4-From his vantage point as captain of a Great Lakes tug, Burke takes readers through a job as he and his crew pick up an enormous grain-carrying ship and guide her around the tricky bends of the Buffalo River to a grain elevator. In straightforward sentences, he explains why these boats are necessary; equipment and preparations he employs; and the hazards he must avoid, along with the difficulties of maneuvering such a large vessel. Each page is illustrated with one or more clear full-color photographs; some show closeups of important objects along with larger scenes; others carry the action across the gutter. The picture of the grain ship at the unloading dock is a bit confusing, because readers see only the middle section being pushed by the tug. Otherwise, the illustrations support and clarify the narrative. Questions and answers about Great Lakes tugboats and a glossary complete the volume. The initial letter of text on each page is surrounded by a blue box with stylized waves, which detracts rather than adds to the impact. There are many other books about boats, but there is little else that's recent and in color about tugs.
