by Norel, K.
A native of the Dutch North Sea island of Terschelling, the boy Dirk dreams of going to sea as his father, a merchant mariner, has done before him. When Dirk finishes grade school, he signs on as bottle washer aboard the Sea Dog, his uncle’s tugboat. Finding the job not to his liking, especially when everyone teases him unmercifully, he wonders whether he’s made the right choice. His gutsy perseverance however, sees him through queasy hours, and he finds his sea legs at last. Even then, the legendary appeal of the sea and the minds of the men around him will have much to teach him about himself....
