Memoirs of a 20th Century Master Mariner|
Born in Nome, Alaska, J. Holger Christensen, joins that exclusive fraternity of master mariners –- skilled seamen who are licensed to operate a vessel on any of the world’s oceans regardless of tonnage.
Raised on Bainbridge Island, Washington, he sails to distant lands as mariner and ship captain in World War II. Holger always returns to the North Pacific where he challenges the unforgiving waters of the Bering Sea and Gulf of Alaska.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Vaughn Sherman's career as a fisheries biologist in the Pacific Northwest was cut short when he was recruited by the Central Intelligence Agency. He has written three books. He and his wife live in Edmonds, Washington.
