Book Description
For bringing in one million seal pelts, Captain Abram Kean was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1934.

"When Captain Abram Kean, doyen of our ice hunters and northern seamen, invited me to write a foreword to this book, I felt profoundly honoured, for we have been friends for forty years, and seafaring people. True seamanship-courage-unselfishness, and genuine love for his fellow men.

They that go down to the sea in ships' don't often write books; when they do I advise all my friends, especially professional story-writers, to read them. I heartily commend Captain Kean's book to every one of them".

-Sir Wilfred Grenfell

"Old and young ahead' was the cry often heard when the sealing ship came onto a patch of seals. This is an intesting and informative book but somewhat idiosyncratic. [Kean] does not give his sealing career the prominence it deserves. Nevertheless, this is the first-hand account of sealing by Newfoundlan's greatest sealing captain and is intrinsially valuable because of that".
