 The Doryman's Reflection: A Fisherman's Life

$19 (hardcover)

"The seemingly inexhaustible resources of the New World triggered a fish rush that would continue into the twentieth century. The story of what happened during the last moments of that rush is brilliantly told by Paul Molyneaux in The Doryman's Reflection."-- Tim Flannery, the New York Review of Books

A vivid and personal account of the policies that drove the decline of New England's fisheries. Paul Molyneaux describes his entry into the fishing industry and his years with Bernard Raynes, a humble man who, coming from eleven generations in the fishing business, built a 60-foot schooner in his backyard, and took it out to Georges Bank to hunt swordfish. The times were against Bernard. His story is but one of many similar stories of fishing communities and fish stocks all over the world collapsing under the weight of economic imperialism and cultural genocide.
