About this title

Synopsis:

De nombreux écrivains ont évoqué le rude métier de ces travailleurs de la mer qu'étaient les pêcheurs de Terre-Neuve et d'Islande. Jamais personne n'avait étudié avec autant de précision cette grande pêche qui -en son temps- faisait vivre des dizaines de milliers de famille.
L'historique de la pêche à la morue; les coutumes pour les hommes et les navires, les engagements avec la foire aux marins dans le pays de Saint-Malo, les visites des navires, les départs et les traversées, la pêche à la boëtte, l'équipage, les journées sur les bancs, la nourriture, l'hygyène, les maladies et les blessures, l'alcoolisme, la discipline à bord, sont autant de chapitres détaillés. Le retour, la vente de la morue, les salaires, les bénéfices de l'armement, les syndicats, le présent et l'avenir de la grande pêche composent la dernière partie de ce livre exeptionnel, dont la précision rigoureuse n'altère en rien le récit passionnant d'un auteur original.
