For those interested in the early maritime movement, this is an easy read, provides good background,and may serve to help one grasp the early maritime struggles. However, there are no notes, nor a bib. Berwick paints Furuseth as pratically the greatest man since Jesus Christ. Well, I suppose it is mentioned that he was stubborn, and could not differentiate between a communists, and a wobblie, however Old Andy's flaws are underplayed. Try seeking William Camp's San Francisico; Port of Gold for information on the 19th century and Bruce Neslon's Workers on the Waterfront, for a more detailed, and balanced view of the maritime movement in the 20th century.
  • Ceck
A must read for anyone in the maritime industry . Know your roots. Well written , historically correct, recounts the heroic efforts put forth by free men and the leaders of those men who wanted recognition for there skilled labor and a fair and just wage for their labors.
Work is worship, to labor is to pray,because it is to exercise the highest, the divine faculties implanted in us as the sons of God.
