Working the Sea is the story of a Maine fisherman's life, a collection of memories and teachings from a master storyteller. Author Wendell Seavey, who grew up in the 1940s in the fishing village that inspired this story, avoids the overly romantic or picturesque language of other fishing and working-class narratives, writing in a true Downeast Yankee voice and candidly describing both the joys and hardships of the fishing life. Seavey is firmly rooted in the fishing traditions of his community and family, and the book reflects these deep roots. But his perspectives and observations are unique and at times unexpected as he travels across the United States, engages in psychic and spiritual activity, develops an environmental philosophy of life, and meets a host of memorable countercultural characters.

This new edition includes an account of the author's two-year sojourn in Texas as well as several other new stories.I heard a great big gasp come out of my self-appointed teacher and guide, and she walked over to me and said: a€œYou didna#39;t ...
