Book Description
Newfoundland deep sea fishing captain Arch Thornhill tells of his life in Newfoundland and Nova Scotian offshore fisheries earlier in this century. Such men came from hundreds of Newfoundland's small fishing outports. They crewed offshore fishing vessels from Newfoundland to New England. Their high rish occupation demanded tenacious resolve: They would work by God!, to make their living, and maybe escape the shackles of merchant credit bondage at home. Hard driving captains and indifferent seas tested their endurance, wits and courage in peace and war. Relentless economic forces soon replaced fishing schooners and their dories and powered groundfish trawlers, and fresh fish processing plants. This continued an unrestrained, and ultimately annihilating intensification of fish stock exploitation.

About the Author
The social anthropologist author is an ex-seafarer's son drawn to learn the ways and meanings of fishing and seafaring.
