Summary

Captain Dynamite Johnny O'Brien sailed the seven seas for over sixty years, starting in the late 1860s in India and ending in the early 1930s on the U.S. West Coast. This book tells of sailing over the oceans when danger and adventure coexisted every day, tough times, and courageous men in distant places, from the Hawaiian Islands to the Bering Sea. Smell the salt in the air and hear the ocean's rush as the ship sails with hardened men, leaking seams, and shrieking winds.
