AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The wife of a commercial traveller worries continually about her husband, who drives over dangerous roads seeking new clients so that he can gain promotion. She meets the wife of a fisherman who is equally as anxious about her husband who risks his life in a small boat, trying to earn enough to buy a trawler. There is a curious similarity between the two men's experiences which the 'motor-car' wife finds comforting.
