Memories of the Cornish Fishing Industry by Sheila Bird

Around the wild and windswept Cornish coast fishing has been a way of life for centuries. Sons have followed fathers and grandfathers in the family boats, setting out from ports such as Polperro, Mevagissey, Mousehole, Newlyn, St Ives, Port Isaac and Looe to brave the stormy Atlantic Ocean to earn their living. Those who fished these waters faced, and still face, potential danger every time they put to sea. Before the memories are lost forever, author Sheila Bird has taken the time to talk to the fishermen of Cornwall. Using firsthand accounts and a fascinating collection of photographs, she tells their story; the conditions, the work, the people and the humor.
