Terry Moore

All who closely knew these people, as I have, would come to admire them. This is a true story of hard-working individuals who had vision, ethics, and the tenacity to persevere through various challenges in starting a company on a shoestring. With little more than the desire to provide for themselves and those that worked for them, the reader is exposed to perils faced along the way as well as personal and economic hardships.

For this reader, a mariner himself who lived through these times, and having known and had business dealings with many of those mentioned in the book, I found the author’s presentation of Ed and Dugie Freeman’s story to be a terrific read. The book is especially accurate and informative with historical events during the decades and filled with motivation for others who would aspire to similar paths.
