What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

An important book, both a wonderful tribute to Down East fishing communities and a wrenching testament to the changes associated with forces far beyond a fisherman's control.—Barbara Garrity-Blake, Duke University Marine Lab, Beaufort, N.C.



I'll never look at a boat moored in a bay again and just see 'a boat.' I'll always wonder about the web of builders, fishermen, and local families whose lives are connected to it, sometimes over generations. Earley has brought these boats to life in a way nobody ever has.—David Cecelski, author of The Fire of Freedom: Abraham Galloway and the Slaves' Civil War
