Description

Based on the author's real experiences as a member of a search and rescue team on the Great Lakes in the late 1960's, 'Sea Dog' puts a different face on those times. Written with a wry, ironic humour, this a coming-of-age story that parallels the maturation of American society during that period. The story takes place during the glory days of manned lighthouses and boat rescues, before automation of the lights and Coast Guard reliance on air power. Numerous realistic Coast Guard rescues are described in detail. The salty characters are deftly drawn, including Yogi, the sea dog, one of the most unique canine characters in literature. 'Sea Dog' is a funny, personal look at the everyday heroes who risk their lives in the United States Coast Guard.
