In his number-one best seller The Perfect Storm, Sebastian Junger describes Linda Greenlaw as one of the best sea captains, period, on the East Coast. Now Greenlaw tells her own riveting story of a 30 day swordfishing voyage aboard one of the best-outfitted boats on the East Coast, complete with danger, humor, and characters so colorful they seem to have been ripped from the pages of Moby Dick. The excitement starts immediately, even before Greenlaw and her five-man crew leave the dock - and it doesn't stop until the last page. Under way, she must cope with nasty weather, equipment failure, and treachery aboard ship, not to mention the routinely backbreaking work of operating a fishing boat.

Displaying a true fisherman's gift for storytelling and a true writer's flair for both drama and reflection, Greenlaw offers an exciting real-life adventure tale filled with the beauty and power of the sea. Download and start listening now!

    " A lot of it was read on the plane from Austin up to Maine, but I finished off the last bits in Maine. Wonderful book! I'm looking forward to the other two. She writes in a very straightforward style on the parts about the month out catching swordfish, but is more "lyrical" in the "Mug-Up" chapters, which are more personal recollections, including how she decided that she wanted to become a fisherman. Although I think the best one was all about the superstitions of fisherman. Pretty funny stuff. "

    " A fast read from a unique perspective. It's a homey book by a working woman (yes, she's got a degree too, but nothing about this book seems "literary"). I reeeeeeally enjoyed it and am sure any Deadliest Catch fan would love it, too (different kind of fishing, but same kind of stories). "

    " I enjoyed this book so much I went and got her other one...Lobster Chronicles. It was not as good. Read this one-skip Lobster Chronicles "
