Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"This ambitious and multifaceted book provides a sweeping history of the southeastern Alaska fishery and the people who oriented their lives around it, breaking down conventional boundaries by incorporating Indian, labor, and environmental history, all the while addressing some of the most important themes in western scholarship." -American Historical Review

"Books about fish tend to be tales of decline. A welcome exception is David's F. Arnold's portrait of the small-boat fishery and fishermen of Southeast Alaska. It is a fishery that is ecologically healthy, if not necessarily economically sound, and if that seems to be a paradox, that is because it is a fishing culture as varied and changeable as the fish themselves. Arnold's is a thoughtful and insightful examination." -Oregon Historical Quarterly

David F. Arnold is professor of history at Columbia Basin College, Pasco, Washington. He has also worked extensively in the commercial salmon fisheries of Alaska.
