When Frank was growing up, he remembers taking a fairy ride across Lake Champlain in a storm. Clutching on to the seat in front of him, all he could think about was making it to the other side alive. After reading about Bering Sea crab fishing, he laughed thinking about what the Hillstrand brothers might have to say about his experience.
Time Bandit: Two Brothers, the Bering Sea, and One of the World's Deadliest Jobs by Andy Hillstrand, Johnathan Hillstrand, and Malcolm Macpherson
Natives of the tiny fishing town of Homer, Alaska, the Hillstrand boys couldn't imagine a life without a swaying deck underfoot and a harvest of Alaskan king crab to haul up from the depths. In pursuit of their daily catch, the brothers brave ice floes, rogue waves 60 feet high, the Russian navy, and the icy depths of the Bering Sea. From start to finish, this book will keep you glued to the page.
