More About The Hungry Ocean by Linda Greenlaw
 
 
 
Overview
In his number-one bestseller, The Perfect Storm, Sebastian Junger describes Linda Greenlaw as "one of the best sea captains, period, on the East Coast". Now Greenlaw tells her own riveting story of a thirty-day swordfishing voyage aboard one of the best-outfitted boats on the East Coast, complete with danger, humor, and characters so colorful they seem to have been ripped from the pages of Moby Dick. The excitement starts immediately, even before Greenlaw and her five-man crew leave the dock -- and it doesn't stop until the last page. While under way, she must contend with nasty weather, equipment failure, and treachery aboard ship, not to mention the routinely backbreaking work of operating a fishing boat.

Displaying a true fisherman's gift for storytelling and a true writer's flair for both drama and reflection, Greenlaw offers what readers can't seem to get enough of these days -- real-life adventure and tales of the beauty and power of the sea.
