Description
Those who put to sea for a dangerous and chancy living could ask for no better chronicler. McCloskey has sailed with fishermen and women in all the seas of the world, from Indonesian village fishermen, to a Japanese squid boat in the North Pacific, to cod fishermen on the Grand Banks and gillnetters in Alaska, working alongside them as he went.

Fishing is the last of the hunting occupations, a hard but fiercely independent life. McCloskey's vivid prose puts you right on deck, working like the devil as the decks roll, the spray flies, and the nets are hauled. His love of the boats, the fishermen, and the sea shines through this moving, fascinating, and often funny tribute to a way of life.
