Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

For seven months Upton and his family worked aboard their 32-foot vessel fitted for gill-netting and trolling. His chronological account is studded with explanations of various aspects of the trade, the time, and the place, and with black-and-white photographs every few pages. The 1977 edition was published by Alaska Northwest Publishing Company, Anchorage. No index or bibliography. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews@booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Step aboard Joe Upton's 32-foot troller and journey with him into another world. It's Southeast Alaska in the 1970s, and this evocative, true-life account chronicles four months of commercial fishing in the Inside Passage. Travel with Upton through open channels and narrow fjords, past forested shorelines, tiny villages, abandoned homesteads, and deserted canneries. Experience the life of the independent fisher — the lonely hours at sea, the satisfaction of a good day's catch, and the easy camaraderie of other fishers. You'll be entranced by this authentic tale of the Southeast Alaska landscape and way of life.
