About this title

Synopsis:

Boats of Alaska: An Artist's Guide to Alaska’s Commercial Fishing Boats is a book for all lovers of the sea, from the novice who wanders the docks and marinas of Alaska and are curious about the boats they see, to the experienced old seaman who’s memory is renewed by looking at the paintings and sketches. By reading, and using, Boats of Alaska, you can gain a basic knowledge of fishing activities along Alaska’s coast. Unlike most boat books, the paintings in this book show boats at work in their natural environment. Pedro’s 29 paintings, over 40 sketches, and indexes, coupled with a sprinkling of sea stories, give a vivid glance at the romance of commercial fishing in Alaska.

Review:

Boats of Alaska captures the true beauty of Alaska and fishing people and their industry. This book will be a revelation for readers in the fishing industry and those who know nothing of it. Peggy Dyson, National Weather Service

Boats of Alaska fills a long-standing need. A neophyte, with this book in hand, will be able to identify almost any of the many types of small commercial fishing boats found in Alaska's watersand to know what they fish for. Pedro Denton's detailed sketches of the mechanics of fishing for various species also make clear how fish are caught. Visitors to Alaska's coastal boat harbors can add to their enjoyment by reading this book in advance, or having a copy in hand as they wander the docks. Jim Rearden: wildlife and fisheries biologist, commercial fisherman, author, and former Outdoors Editor for Alaska Magazine.

Pedro Denton, an artistic, commercial fisherman, with a passion for boats, is the real deal. boats of Alaska is a great resource for anyone interested in how Alaskans go about making a living from the sea. Ray Troll, Ketchikan artist and book illustrator -- Publisher Comments
