David Midgett is another one of Mark Raney’s sea sagas localised off the Eastern Seaboard replete with the sound and fury of the oceans, the ebb and flow of the tides, the hopes and triumphs of the men who ply these waters, live off these waters, survive off these waters and know no other.
Through the life of David Midgett, who is one of those who knows no other, Mark Raney presents a persuasive portrayal of the lives of his ilk who continue to pursue the vocation of his forebears untouched by the march of time.
A leisurely book, perhaps leisurely written, meant to be read at leisure which a quick look oh-so-expansively into the lives of a people who live life on their own terms, in tune with the forces of nature, that those without would scarce know exists. David Midgett helps them to glimpse into this and ruminate on a world that so close to nature, so much one with nature that the trappings of modern man prove to be just that-trappings.
