A set of five volumes of short stories that will enlighten the imagination and the intrigue of the sea with many told and untold adventures, now revealed as short easy-to-read stories about the Alaskan seas, adventures and people. The stories are compilations taken from real events. Captain Hopkins has captured the seafaring life in Alaska along with the people who live and work the magnificent Alaska coastline. The series is reminiscent of the popular television reality series set in the Bering Sea, and includes stories of crab fishing, cruise ships, tugboats, and Alaska ferries. The books are beautifully designed with inviting full-color covers and include Alaskan photos along with the text. An added bonus is the Alaska Travel Notes section at the end of every volume. **Each set is bound together in an attractive, nautically-designed packet and includes a hand-signed gift tag.**
