BLOOD ON BROWN WATER CHAPTER 4 WILL BE POSTED SHORTLY. IN A DEPARTURE FROM THE SERIALIZATION SO FAR THE ENTIRE CHAPTER WILL BE PRESENTED AT ONCE.
THE TITLE OF THIS CHAPTER IS:
AN INDUSTRY THAT EATS ITS YOUNG
This is the chapter where the book really takes off and begins to reflect the book's name. The description of the death of teen aged deckhand Joe Hullen is almost too painful to read. The words of maritime expert the late Capt. Jay Disler to the court will echo through history until these safety issues are addressed in the halls of Congress. If you have not been following this serial, or you have grown tired take the time to read chapter 4, even if it is the only part of the book you ever read. It is chapter 4 that is the salvation of the book which is so otherwise flawed. It is in chapter 4 that the need for reform is presented in a truly riveting fashion. Here is why we equate the ultimate effect of this small work with "TWO YEARS BEFORE THE MAST."
History is about to be made, if you don't at least read chapter 4 you will have missed the moment.
