WOW! Killing ice, howling storms, rogue waves, all in the middle of Alaska's Bering Sea, while defeat or success depends on positioning a metal cage on the bottom of the sea just right for a living creature to crawl inside? A superb interweaving of a sea faring family's past with the same family's present, all enclosed in the impact of the industry on Alaska and the Seattle area. Be prepared to feel that you are part of the crew - half frozen, drenched in sea water, and perhaps worst - as you ride along through this story.

This confirmed land lubber stayed up past bedtime reading this one. The included map was referred to many times to locate where things were taking place, plus the interspersed photos added to the experience.
