The life of a fisherman can be a treacherous one filled with peril and potential death. "Salt in Our Blood: The Memoir of a Fisherman's Wife" is the reflections of a homemaker when the family business is doing a job with a shockingly high mortality rate. The daily worry, the daily challenges, and the unfortunate event of what they fear most occurring. "Salt in Our Blood" is very much recommended for anyone with family in the commercial fishing industry.
In 2000, Michele Longo Eder began a journal to record what daily life was like for her while her husband and sons were out commercial fishing off the coasts of Oregon, Washington, and northern California. But personal tragedy struck just before Christmas 2001. This book is an offer of healing to her family, her community, and to fishing families everywhere.
