Deborah Doane Dempsey was the first woman enrolled at Maine Maritime Academy and graduated as valedictorian in 1976. The co-authors, Deborah Doane Dempsey and Joanne Foster, the Captain and a landlubber - passenger aboard the Charlotte Lykes - wrote alternating chapters. She sat for her Master's license in 1984, scoring extremely high on this four and a half day exam. Some of the writing is poor - I found myself rereading sentences to figure out what the author was trying to say. Technical terms are not explained as they should be.

In 2007 Captain Dempsey was a Columbia River Bar Pilot. Additional resources. Dempsey, Deborah and Joanne Reckler Foster. The Captain’s a Woman: Tales of a Merchant Mariner. Naval Institute Press.

I had hoped for more from the woman's side...but she skips over the trouble I'm pretty sure she ran into. I don't mean any sexual trouble but rather the kind of trouble any woman rising to power in a macho man's world would encounter. I spent ten years as an officer in the merchant marine before there were any women (except as passenger ship waitresses) in the crew: there must have been plenty of strains to overcome. How did she do it? The story has not yet been told. Once (perhaps in 1953) my freighter was docked next to a Norwegian ship: the radio officer on that ship was a woman. The conversation in our all-male messroom was...what I call it...unspeakable. Now, fifty years later, I understand that ten to fifteen percent of the kids in America's maritime academies, turning out ship's officers, are women. I believe the navy is doing even more along those lines. Bravo...or brava...ladies! I only wish we had more ships for you to sail on.

The fact that the main character of this book was one of the very first female merchant marine captains is almost irrelevant today. The world has evolved significantly with regard to "the place of women in the work force" since this book was published. Some of the comments and attitudes recounted in this book now seem quaint and archaic.

The real value of this book, however, is its description of the life of merchant marine officers, the nature of their work, their career progression from cadet to third mate to ocean captain, and the constant pressure on them to perform as fast as possible with zero errors. This realistic account de-mystifies and de-romanticizes life in the merchant marine. A challenging and fascinating career, yes. A romantic career sailing the Seven Seas, not quite.

Would have received a 5-star rating, except for some poor editing.

Very informative with out the assumed jargon of the industry. She explained thing well. I also enjoyed the narrative style of her cruises, giving me a sense of sailing along with her and her other officers and crew-mates. This is factual experience memoir, not a fanciful yarn despite the title, hyped to make a best seller. Well done!

Amazing lady!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book - had a hard time putting it down, even. Captain Dempsey never whines about the difficulties she encountered as a female in a man's world - she just tells an interesting story.
