9780143119562: Seaworthy: A Swordboat Captain Returns to the Sea

America's only female swordfish boat captain returns with this long- awaited follow-up to the bestselling The Hungry Ocean.

After the exploits recounted in The Perfect Storm and The Hungry Ocean that made her a sensation, Linda Greenlaw took a ten- year hiatus from blue-water fishing. When an old friend offered her a captaincy on his swordboat, Greenlaw ditched her mounting bills and headed for the sea. Full of adventure and thought-provoking reflection, Seaworthy recounts her return to the beautiful and deadly Grand Banks -from the nuances of reading weather and the complexities of longline fishing to the surprise of landing in jail for crossing into Canadian waters. The result is both a wild ride and a memorable look at one woman's struggle to define her own limits.

From AudioFile:

Maine boat captain Linda Greenlaw starts off this chapter of her life story with the thoughts running through her mind while she was held in a Newfoundland jail. She describes her emotions in unflinching detail, but her crime? One just has to keep listening to Greenlaw's story of her ill-fated return to the sea. Greenlaw holds one's attention as she delivers her account with bluntness and contemplativeness. The lure of the sea is made real with her voice. The author has an innate sense of timing and the drama of the situation that will keep listeners hooked, even after they've figured out what happened: She drifted into Canadian waters without realizing it and was caught fishing there. J.A.S. AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
