Lobster Chronicles, Life on a Very Small Island

Lobster Chronicles, Life on a Very Small Island

by Linda Greenlaw

  • BIOGRAPHY/MEMOIR
  • 2003
  • PAPER
  • 238 PAGES

A former swordboat captain, and a fine writer to boot, Greenlaw returns to the small Maine island (Isle au Haut) where she grew up, and takes up the lobstering life. It's not as easy as she hopes, and her book is a wonderful depiction of coastal Maine, the lobster industry and a tiny community bound to the sea and each other. Readers may remember Greenlaw from her appearance in A Perfect Storm and her first book, The Hungry Ocean.  (USE352, $13.99)
