What I liked the most about this book beyond the 40 years of travels was Ron s disposition toward the establishment or ism as he aptly called itSo many things in this book rang true to me not just because I always felt a real aggravation for people telling me what to do luckily I usually had my way but because once I came to this country I was confronted face to face with all the things Ron complains aboutI was born in Panama which since the discovery of America has been a crossroads and peoples of all nations had walked its streets So Ron s recollections of his days through Panama brought nice memories of youngers days My only complain about this book is that being the recollections of an old sailor it was at times repetitive But not so much as to make me stop enjoying itTrue you can t read this book in one sit Although it s completely worth the time you could invest doing it Do it at night with a cold beer as the author suggested at the beginning It might take you several nights but trust me you will go to bed dreaming of exotic ports and a fulfilled life of adventureRon is not asking you to follow his steps he s just sharing his story and prompting you to reach your own conclusions and accomplish your own dreams whether those include the white picket fence or the French girl waiting for you by the foot of the Eiffel TowerBy the way when I left Panama in the summer of 2008 the Blue Goose was still there servicing gentlemen from all around the worldI received this book thanks to the RrR program from the Making Connections Group at Goodreads

Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcentercom I am the original author of this essay as well as the owner of CCLaP it is not being reprinted illegallyThis clever book is a good example of what I perhaps like best about what comes from the world of basement presses for while it s ostensibly the memoirs of a forty year career sailor with just as many salty amazing stories as you would imagine someone in his position would have it s actually written as a series of direct transcripts of oral conversations conducted with him giving the whole thing this very idiom based Studs Turkel like feel As such then some will naturally tire of its Mametesue clipped rhythm and coarse language but since basement presses are already targeting a small niche crowd they can afford to put out books like these with a very specific audience a title which its fans like me will find flabbergasting and delightful in eual turns It comes recommended in that spiritOut of 10 86
