Product Details


Praise for Linda Greenlaw and Seaworthy

"Book readers should rejoice…Greenlaw’s writing sweeps the reader along not only for the incidents at sea but also for her candid reflections about them." — The Huffington Post

"A great read."

The Boston Examiner

"From mishaps to fish tales, Greenlaw keeps her narrative suspenseful." — Publishers Weekly

"Fast-paced and lively." — The Portland Press Herald

"Greenlaw speaks with unquestionable authority when fashioning the salty atmosphere of swordfishing life. A vanishing slice of life caught with ardor and freshness." — Kirkus

"Greenlaw knows how to spin a good yarn…Seaworthy is a more reflective book, pondering not just the vageries of nature but the nature of success and self-defintion." —

"Greenlaw is a remarkable woman who can hold her own, whether it’s in the male-dominated fishing industry or on the printed page." —

"Pure joy." — The Florida Times-Union (Jacksonville)

"Even if you never really wanted to go to sea for months at a time on a fishing boat…you’ll be caught from the very first sentence of this engrossing and illuminating book." — San Francisco Book Review

Praise for The Hungry Ocean:

“Anyone who loves the sea will love this book.”

Sebastian Junger, author of The Perfect Storm

“A beautiful book…A story of triumph, of a woman not only making it but succeeding at the highest level in one of the most male-dominated and most dangerous professions.” — Douglas Whynott, The New York Times Book Review

Praise for The Lobster Chronicles:

“These true, interwoven stories of island life and lobstering are as engaging and uncommon as [Greenlaw’s] adventures at sea.” — Boston Magazine

Praise for All Fisherman Are Liars:

“You can’t help but be a bit in awe of Greenlaw for her gutsiness, and she comes across as so darn likable you wish you were sitting at the Dry Dock next to her.” — The Miami Herald
