About this title

Synopsis:

With its smooth, sandy beach, the quiet coastal town of Pacific City, on the coast of Oregon’s Tillamook County, is the perfect home for a unique group of boats. The Pacific City dory fleet has a proud history spanning more than 100 years. Nestled in the natural shelter provided by Cape Kiwanda, the fleet lives on today as one of the most interesting fishing fleets in the world. The small flat-bottomed boats dare the ocean as they crash through the surf headed for the plentiful waters of the Pacific. At day’s end, they ride the waves back to shore and slide onto the beach. The original design of the dory allows it to launch from and land on the shore. Through the inherent dangers of ocean fishing, governmental restriction, international fishing competition, and, most recently, the influx of surfers and civilization, the dedicated fishermen have held on to tradition.

About the Author:

Jeanna Rosenbalm Bottenberg’s enthusiasm for the dory fleet began in her childhood, during the summers spent watching her father and other dory men bringing in their catch. Using photographs from both public and private sources, as well as those of professional photographer Bob Hill, Bottenberg tells the story of the Pacific City dory fleet.
