“This is a dramatic and absorbing novel of the Australian maritime industry. It is a human story of mateship under stress; of man and woman under the northern palms; of automation on the Queensland wharves and the problems which follow.
It is the story of those colourful characters the Queensland watersiders, told by one of them who has the knack of recreating their waterfront idiom, their camaraderie and lively spirits.
Lew Brody is a man in conflict as automation comes to the tropic town of Sugarport. What happens to Lew and those close to him is a story of industrial unrest, the cyclonic havoc of “Terrible Tilly” and a romance which unfolds with imaginative insight.”
