All those fishbooks—what's the difference??
Announcing Book Launch: September 2020 release.
The personal account, first-person stories, not featured as a photobook but 500 B&W photos illustrate the years fishing and fish-writing, laced with the true-life mystery of a fisherman lost to the sea.
6"x9" softcover, 500 B&W photos, 426 pages (40% photos).
Softcover and uncoated paper make this the most affordable of the books.
The new memoir's the personal story overarching all books—all with lots of photos, all with adventure, all sharing a fishing life, lifestyle and livelihood of an era gone by.
See more details under menu's "fish books."
Both coffee-table photobooks feature previously published stories written for the fish papers in real time during the '80s, quoting lots of fishfolks so it's like you're there in the middle of the action. They highlight photography and history and culture of the fishing life, different from my personal story, perspective and adventures in the memoir.
The B&W documentary history—Alaska Fishing Gold Rush of the 1980s. Halibut, black-cod and king-salmon fisheries changed dramatically during the '80s. From the old days to a gold-rush boom in a fishing frenzy, fishermen rushed to catch the mother lode in a deadly race for fish. 100s of B&W photos; eyewitness account of an era gone by.
10"x8," 395 pages, ~500 B&W photos, avail. hard- or softcover.
Hardcover's nice for presentation on a coffee table. Previously published in 9"x12," out of print; 4th Ed. reformatted in 2020 into 10"x8" with no loss of material.
The fun-and-pretty color book—Fishing for a Living in Alaska's Southeast. Coated photopaper for stunning (and expensive) effect, general-interest stories for non-fishing readers as well. 100s of color photos.
11"x13" hardcover coffee-table book, 232 pages.
8"x10" hard- or softcover, 228 pages—same material, smaller format.
Books shipped straight from online printer, unsigned.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or to make arrangements for signing/inscribing books with double shipping (to me then to you).
There is some overlap of photos and a couple stories between photobooks and memoir. SEA CHANGE on the last frontier is meant for a much broader audience—non-fishing and fishing readers alike—and didn't want to lose some of the material appearing in photobooks for the smaller readership.
