Acerca de


A young lad of 16 spending a summer aboard his father's fishing boat in the summer of 1964 begins to learn the lessons that will guide him through an active and satifying life. And in the process, he risks his life and limb, spends hours and hours bored and has adventures that would rival those of Tom Sawyer-but in a totally different enviroment. At 16, young Larry Sparks is spending his fourth consecutive summer as the crewman on his father's 48 foot coastal gillnet fishing boat. But in the summer of 64, he is reaching a peak in his physical powers and has a deep seated desire to learn more about who he will grow up to be so he invests his thinking time by investigating the fundamental rules and principles of adult living of the very business his father is in. Larry faces the sometimes dangerous adventures that the sea always provides mariners of all stripes as they challenge nature at her elemental best. Larry's story is interesting even to non-fisherman as it is filled with escapades and adventure that may rival Tom Sawyer.

About the Author:

For economic reasons, Larry Sparks continued to fish in Alaska for another ten years after 1964. He gillnetted and purse seined out of Bristol Bay and Kodiak and also Puget Sound. In case you are wondering, Larry did captain his own boat. He earned undergraduate and graduate degrees in political science and History at Western Washington University as well as MBA from Seattle Pacific University. Larry began an onshore business career at the Boeing Commercial Airplane Company in October 1974 and continued to work for the company until December 2005, holding down positions in both finance and procurement. During his 32 year career at Boeing, he worked in various capacities on every commercial aircraft program as well as on the B-2 miltary bomber project. Larry continues to work in aerospace business as a consultant and is involved in local civic affairs. He has been married to his wife, Janice, for over twenty years.
