Overview

Red Summer: The Danger and Madness of Commercial Salmon Fishing in Alaska is a vivid memoir of Bill Carter's four summers spent in grueling and exhilaratingly hard work as a commercial salmon fisherman in a remote Eskimo village in Alaska on the shores of Bristol Bay, that provides indelible portraits of the rugged individuals who are drawn to this work, particularly his crew-boss Sharon, who lives by the credo: do the work or leave. Certain to appeal to adventurers, environmentalists and armchair travelers, in the tradition of Jon Krakauer, Peter Matthiessen and Sebastian Junger, this is an honest and impassioned account of what it means to leave so-called civilization behind for a life on the extreme edge, full of danger, excitement and untold beauty.
