Grand Banks and Distant Shores is a rare exploration of these men, and the myths, legends, dramas, and tragedies that surround their lives. With in-depth coverage of the ancient Greeks to Americas 19th-century whalers to present-day factory ships, this book provides a porthole into the history of fishing around the world. 200 unflinching photographs further illuminate one of the most dangerous and little-understood occupations. Grand Banks and Distant Shores is a rare and glorious tribute to the lives, passions, and hardships of fishermen through the ages and across the continents.
