Douglas Whynott of the New York Times Book Review called it “a story of triumph, of a woman not only making it but succeeding at the highest level in one of the most male-dominated and most dangerous professions”. Linda Greenlaw presents a thrilling and fascinating account of her experience as captain on a thirty-day swordfishing voyage, battling exhaustion, equipment failure, and the hungry ocean.
