His Mas ter of Craft is another classic of skippers in the coasting trade under sail at the end of the 19th century . These inimitable sketches lay before us a valuable and now largely vanished way of life. It was sur prising wo t a little differen ce George Dixo n ' s being aw a y made to th e Blue Lio n. No bod y seemed to miss ' im mu ch , a nd thin gs went on just the same as afo re he we nt.
