Excellent Book Reviews

An excerpt from a great review by Bill Keep (for more of his in depth reviews on books about environment, nature/ecology, farming, energy and sustainability, go to Bill Keep's Book Reviews):

"Nancy Danielson Mendenhall creates a vivid profile of a classic small business venture with a long history and an uncertain future. She details its importance -- especially to small coastal communities -- its joys and rewards, threats to its survival, and the complicated interplay of groups which would control, sustain, perhaps even eliminate such ventures.

Throughout she feeds us firsthand accounts of trolling for salmon, long-lining for halibut and cod, crabbing through unstable winter ice and summer’s recent rough seas -- sometimes idyllic, sometimes frightening, always compelling: she puts us there."
