Editorial Reviews

Review

"Carey adeptly weaves many strands into a compelling, lucid story line, which should be required reading for the policymaker and concerned citizen." Sea History

"A compassionate chronicle of a threatened way of life." The New York Times

"This book should be read for its balanced portrayal of a New England fishery, but more than that it exemplifies the classic conflict between natural and human resources. Yes, it is true that certain kinds of fishing are very destructive. But Carey is also a humanist and a journalist of considerable depth, who weaves the fate of men and fish together into a whole story." The Washington Post

About the Author

Richard Adams Carey was born in Connecticut and educated at Harvard College. After his graduation, in 1973, he went to work in a northwestern sawmill, and he has since divided his time between Alaska and New England.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By P. A. Forster on February 18, 2006
Format: Paperback
I gave this book to my husband who enjoyed this book immensly! He the "old fisherman" who used to fish out of Cape Cod and New Bedford, Woods Hole, all the way up to Maine, back in the old days before these new fishing regulations, said this book brought back fond memories of fishing and those long gone days.. Some of the people mentioned in this book were friends of his. The book is very well written and is a picture of the fishing industry, what it was and what it is today. Highly recommended to anyone interested in this subject.

By John the Reader on January 26, 2013
Format: Paperback
An admirable addition to any reader's collection on "the fishing" and the folks who brave it in order to feed us. And it is a close examination of those fisherman in its coverage of their daily grind and life, the battles for fair treatment of both the prey and their hunters.
