January-Turn the page Tuesday
My favorite book this month was Will Hobbs "Leaving Protection" This book is about a young man who leaves his family's house boat to work the wild Alaskan sea's on a salmon troller. The water is ruff & tough as is Robbie's boss Tor Torsen, who at times seems more like a pirate than captain of a salmon boat.
This book intrigued me as my Grandpa & Grandma Sannar where commercial fisherman in South East Alaska, the same area this book takes place in. They mention the town of Craig that I have heard in conversations many times and even mention Ketchikan where my family lived when I was a young girl.
This book starts out:
"Strange, how it all began. Silence hung over breakfast like a spell. Somebody would make an attempt at cheerful conversation and then it would die out like a campfire built with wet wood."
If you like a good adventure about boats & fishing I would recommend "Leaving Protection" by, Will Hobbs.
