9780312672546: North by Northwestern: A Seafaring Family on Deadly Alaskan Waters

New York Times bestseller

"A chronicle that reads like a collection of your crazy buddy's bar stories about his crazier old man." –Outside Magazine

The action of the hit Discovery Channel series DEADLIEST CATCH combines with the personal saga of a Norwegian family in this memoir adventure tale of commercial fishermen on the Bering Sea

In the tradition of Sebastian Junger and Linda Greenlaw comes Captain Sig Hansen's rags-to-riches epic of his immigrant family's struggle against deadly Alaskan seas, freezing shipwrecks, and dangerously brutal conditions to achieve the American Dream. For Captain Sig Hansen and his brothers, Norman and Edgar, commercial fishing is as much a part of their Norwegian heritage as their names. Descendants of the Vikings who ruled the northern seas for centuries, Sig and his brothers learned to fish from their father when they were boys, just as their father had learned from his father. And after twenty years as a skipper on the commercial fishing vessel the Northwestern Sig has lived to tell the tales.

This is the story of a family of survivors; part memoir and part adventure tale, North by Northwestern brings readers on deck, into the dockside bars and into the history of a family with a common destiny. Built around the gripping tale of a deadly shipwreck like The Perfect Storm, North By Northwestern tells the multigenerational history of the Hansen family, a clan of tough Norwegian-American fishermen who have become modern day folk-heroes.

From AudioFile:

Discovery Channel star Sig Hansen ("Deadliest Catch") offers a compelling account of his Norwegian-American family's history of fishing in the Bering Sea. It's a story full of nail-biting tales of survival in one of the harshest places on the globe. Narrator Rick Adamson reads in a stern tone that projects the weight of the life-or-death moments recounted without attempting to recreate the fear that was surely present in the Hansen fishermen and their crews at the time. In a straightforward and honest narration, Adamson delivers the material with the utmost respect for the job and the individuals who risk their lives doing it. L.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
