This is the first collection of dramatic, first-person accounts of commercial fishing written by the men and women who work in the nation's most dangerous occupation. Nineteen diverse fisher-writers, from the famous to the unknown, take the reader swordfish harpooning on the Georges Banks, winter crabbing in the Bering Sea, sea-urchin diving off Maine, herring fishing in Alaska, shark-harpooning off Scotland and points between. Together, they plumb the extremes of living, working, and sometimes dying at sea, creating the most intensely personal portrait of fishing and fishermen to date.The best writing on commercial fishing is gathered here, blending the voices of such well-known writers as Peter Mathiessen, Gavin Maxwell, Linda Greenlaw, Spike Walker, and John Cole, together with experienced and emerging writers, many of whom have spent much of their lives on the water. With its layers and rich textures, this collection will have strong, enduring appeal to loves of nonfiction.Contributors:Marie BeaverJohn ColeMichael CrowleyWendy ErdLeslie Leyland FieldsRobert FritcheyJoel GayLinda GreenlawSeth HarknessNancy LordPeter MathiessenGavin MaxwellWilliam McCloskeyPaul MolyneauxDebra NielsenToby SullivanMartha SutroJoe UptonSpike Walker
