This is the true story in the 1970's of a young 13-year old teenage girl living and working on the Chesapeake Bay.
Emily Lambert worked for several more years on her family's next tug, a 1945 DPC class called the Nanticoke, and sailed two voyages on a T-5 tanker. While raising a family, she became a sportswriter in newspaper and a sports personality on television. She became the first woman sports columnist at her city paper. After winning two writing awards in her field, one national, she retired to write this book, and, to resume a college career interrupted by the winch wheel incident.
"Immediately drawn in from the very first sentence by her vivid imagery, detailed and rich sensory descriptions, I found myself on board the Tug Babe...."
- Captain Marcia Macone, Tug Stalwart, Crowley Maritime, Valdez, Alaska
"E.V. Lambert's tale of growing up on a working tugboat is a rollicking good read ... As a woman who broke into the maritime industry in 1976, I have always been interested to know who had gone before me."
- Captain Jan Tiura, senior captain with Starlight Marine Services, San Francisco
