Description
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.
