Description

Johnnie Angus grew up around fishermen and fishing vessels and, like other young men in Judique, on Cape Breton's southwest shore, he always dreamed of going to sea. When he and his companion Louis, "a Gaelic-speaking negro," get trapped "accidentally" aboard his uncle's schooner in the harbour at Port Hood, their hair-raising and daring adventures begin.

Full of action throughout, The Crested Seas is fine entertainment for all ages, a chance to go to sea vicariously in the age of graceful schooners and experience the timeless struggle of man against the sea.
