Review in Pacific Yachting

"Doreen Armitage is no stranger to writing about BC, its history and its characters. Author of Around the Sound: A History of Howe Sound-Whistler and Burrard Inlet: A History. In her latest work, Armitage set out to collect BC's best towboating tales. Step into the lives of the industry's most colourful characters and greatest heroes as well as ordinary captains and crew. She captures the romance, danger and day-to-day experiences of a sector of the marine industry that most people know little about. The settlement of the BC coast was largely due to the work of tugboats and anyone who has spent time on the water can appreciate the legendary familiarity and skills that towboaters have with BC's dangerous waters and unpredictable weather."
