“. . . a powerful and vivid portrayal of commercial fishing in Alaskan waters. . . . This book is engaging, intriguing and thrilling for anyone who might be fascinated by the lives of these extraordinary working women who thrive on hard challenges, physical and emotional stamina, and moments of grace within an elemental and fiercely beautiful sphere.”
