Softcover - 157 pages
Author Peter Prybot spins a fascinating narrative about the lobster industry, introducing its pioneers, its development and even some of today’s salt-crusted lobstermen. Personally concerned with the future of the lobstering profession, Prybot writes with hope for the future, but he keeps a keen eye on the dangers that threaten this great American heritage. Witty, funny and at times heart-wrenching, Prybot’s tale of the intertwined lives of the American lobster and the men who chase it is a testament to Gloucester’s deeply rooted ties to the ocean and its marine life.
