Fishing for A LivingBook - 1993
On the West Coast, catching fish is a way of life, celebrated in these writings, oral histories and photographs about the people who build the boats and bring in the fish. This book, the result of a three-decade infatuation with fishing boats and fishing people, salutes those fishers and everyone else who builds the boats, fixes the gear and brings in the fish - from humpback to halibut, from draggers to double-deckers.The book has more than 200 photographs from the author's collection, oral histories from the Native Canadians, Dalmatians, Japanese, Norwegians, Vietnamese and others who created the rich culture of our fishing industry, historical background on the war years and the fisherman's union, an introduction to women in the industry, and even a chapter on the Zen of seining.
