Riassunto: The story of generations of a Scottish fishing community * The story of several generations of a Scottish West Coast fishing community -- taking us from the last century when fishermen went off to sea in rowing boats through to the present day, where fishing vessels are now electronic masterpieces. * Echo sounders have now taken over from instinct, but the old traditions and superstitions still apply, and family links are still strong, the same fishermens' names appearing generation after generation. And the women still play their part, but no longer follow the boats from harbour to harbour to gut the fish; instead they stay at home, listening to the weather forecast on the radio, anxious about the terrors of crowded shipping lanes and the dangers of iced-up fishing gear.
L'autore: A Glasgow-born journalist, Meg Henderson is now one of Scotland's best-loved novelists. She is also the author of Finding Peggy, the bestselling memoir of her Glasgow childhood.
