Overview
..".A beautifully written book about commercial fishing in coastal waters. Joe Upton delivers both the reality and romance of Southeast Alaska."--David Guterson, author of "Snow Falling on Cedars" FOR SEVEN MONTHS Joe Upton steered his 30-foot boat, the "Doreen," through the open channels and narrow, twisting passageways of Southeast Alaska, living the life of an itinerant commercial fisherman far from home. This is Upton's award-winning account of that season--the lonely hours at sea as well as the close community of the fishing fleet; the sudden, violent storms and glorious days of sunshine; the difficult, frenzied work and quiet moments of contemplation. "Alaska Blues" endures as a powerful and enduring portrait of a time and place--of a people and their way of life and the haunting, beautiful shores that draw them back, season after season.
