Summary "The author was a commercial fisher in Nova Scotia in the early 1990s and witnessed first-hand the collapse of Canada's East Coast fishery. His book examines the parallels between his experience and that of 19th-century crofters from the same area who, with their entire communities, suffered dispossession and the imposition of new ways of life, all in the name of economic progress."-- Provided by publisher.
