"Edifying and hugely entertaining. . . . O'Hanlon's is a magnificently original voice: manic, scholarly, funny, sumptuously descriptive, and more than slightly deranged." -Jon Krakauer "One of the most thrilling and inspiring books about science I've ever read . . . hours of pleasure offered by an enchanting dinner guest [who] often reveals himself to be foolishly bold, comically inept, intellectually astute and a madcap driver: Mr. Toad with a Ph.D." -Bruce Barcott, "The New York Times Book Review" ""Trawler" read[s] like "The Perfect Storm" meets "Monty Python,""-"Outside" "O'Hanlon is an adventurer worthy of the word-a credentialed naturalist, a rompish wanderer, a sparkling armchair companion, a bit of a goof and also a smashingly evocative writer. . . . In that wild and exhilarating junction where human and nature meet, he pursues the joys of discovery."-"Los Angeles Times Book Review"Reseña del editor:
Redmond O'Hanlon describes his extraordinary three-week trip on an Orkney trawler as it journeys far into the north Atlantic in search of its catch. Young skipper Jason Schofield has a 2 million pound overdraft on his boat, the Norlantean, which is why he has to go out in a Category One Force 12 hurricane when the rest of the Scottish fleet has run for shelter. O'Hanlon may not be much help when it comes to seamanship - in the words of one of the crew, he doesn't know his arse from his tit - but he is able to wax lyrical on the amazing deep-sea fish to be found north of the Wyville Thomson Ridge: greater argentine, flying squid, blue ling, the truly disgusting hagfish and many other exotics.
Combining humour with erudition, O'Hanlon has written a vivid and compulsively readable account of a journey that for sheer terror beats all his previous adventures.
