The book is a very well written history of fishing and fishing culture from antiquity to today with unique facts and hundreds of recipes and absolutely AWESOME photos!
My husband is a Commercial crabber and we live below New Orleans. This book touched my heart on so many levels, as a cook, a fisherman's wife and a resident of one of the most unique areas in this wide world (especially poignant now that the oil-spill has threatened so much)!
I also own The Encyclopedia of Cajun & Creole Cuisine also by John Folse! I say John Folse is a Louisiana nonpareil Chef and cultural archivist! Bon appetit!!!
This book weighs more than 10 pounds. Hindsight being 20/20, I wish I had gone to my local B&N to purchase it and hand-carry it home. It arrived to me with damaged corners. (the seller went out of his way to work with me. He was fantastic, but he lost money in the deal since he had to replace the damaged book.)
So, save yourself some heartache, and find this gem at a local bookstore and go buy your copy there!
