About this product
- DescriptionIt is a richly detailed and fascinating history of one of North America's oldest and most colourful fishing ports. The port of Gloucester, nestled under Cape Ann in Massachusetts, has been a focus for seafaring stories from Captains Courageous to The Perfect Storm . From its first settlement to its present struggles, the town has seen its share of boom and bust, expansion and retraction, loss and tragedy. The author's grandfather, Steve Ollson was lost at sea in 1935, in a dory, trawling for halibut. With more than seventy vintage photographs and maps, an extensive glossary of fishing terms, and a detailed chrology of the Gloucester fleet, including all the fishermen and vessels lost at sea since 1693, Alone at Sea is the most comprehensive record yet attempted to bring the history of Gloucester - the oldest, most dramatic, and colorful fishing port in the Western hemisphere - to life.
- Author BiographyJohn N. Morris is the grandson of a Gloucester dory fisherman who was lost at sea in 1935. Morris spent ten years researching the history of Gloucester and its people.
