In interviews with fishhouse and dock workers; boat owners and marine agents; wives, friends, and neighbors of shrimpers; and the shrimpers themselves, Robert Lee Maril reveals the web of social and economic relationships that bind Texas shrimpers to their difficult and often dangerous work. This book is about shrimping as an industry, but it is also about the work, the families, the dreams, and the frustrations of the men who catch the shrimp.
