Description
This is the tale of our earth's disappearing fisheries and a vanishing way of life that has defined coastal towns throughout history. The colorful, exuberant story of the fishing town of Gloucester is the lens through which Kurlansky looks at a global tale. Gloucester was established in 1623 as a cod-fishing station. Today, it struggles on, its future uncertain. The Last Fish Tale is a wake-up call to a tragedy in the making.
