BACK COVER
.....is an expansive chronicle of Mr. Lester's sea life, with beginnings in the harsh beauty of San Diego's Portuguese-American Tuna Fleet through military and civilian maritime experiences worldwide. Leroy Lester writes with great detail, compassion and humor about the family and professional lives of commercial fishermen, the logistical trials of military ships' movements, and the participation of civilian defense contractors in modern ship and helicopter development in both war and peacetime use.

Mr. Lester is well appointed with his practical, life-long experience on the water in this recounting of his experiences and observations. You will enjoy the touching realism of his story and gain insight on the very human side of San Diego maritime history.
