Time Bandit Book (Paperback)

SKU ID #95375
$16.00
Dive into the paperback Time Bandit book for a thrilling look at the perilous work of the Hillstrand brothers. Each season, Andy and Johnathan Hillstrand take off for the Bering Sea to reel in king crabs, and it's a career overflowing with constant danger. Their Alaskan king crab fishing book, Time Bandit, conveys the menace and the might of the oceans in vivid detail.

Read the paperback Time Bandit book, and you'll discover that every Alaskan king crab season, brothers Andy and Johnathan Hillstrand risk their lives and seek their fortunes upon the treacherous waters of the Bering Sea. Sons of a hard-bitten, highly successful fisherman, and born with brine in their blood, the Hillstrand boys couldn't imagine a life without a swaying deck underfoot and a harvest of mighty king crabs waiting to be pulled from the ocean floor. The Alaskan king crab fishing book, Time Bandit, shows the brothers in pursuit of their daily catch, as they brave ice floes and heaving waves 60 ft high, face the perils of thousand-pound steel traps thrown about by the punishing wind, and deal with the constant menace of the open, hungry water epitomized in the chorus of a haunting sailors' sing-along: Many brave hearts are asleep in the deep, so beware, beware. By turns raucous and reflective, exhilarating and anguished, enthralling, suspenseful, and wise, Time Bandit chronicles a larger-than-life love affair as old as civilization itself a love affair between striving, willful man and inscrutable, enduring nature.

Shop for the paperback Time Bandit book to experience life on the high and freezing seas as two brothers work hard for your daily catch.

                Johnathan & Andy possess a wonderful, healthy outlook on living as well as the life of a crabber. The book had numerous hilarious passages that kept me reading until the end. The love these two fisherman have for each other is an inspiration! Thanks guys....

                    This book really gives you great insight into how the brothers got their start and what it takes to get a crab boat ready for a season. I never would have dreamed how much time and effort is put into a boat before each season! Great read for any die hard Deadliest Catch fan!

                          My husband and I always watch the deadliest catch series and have been hooked from the beginning. These men perform serious, often life threatening work. They bring you into their lives and you learn all about fishing in the Great Bering Sea! This book is just an added plus to watching the show.

                                    Easy to read, great companion to the show. You can put it down and pick it up but you won't want to.

                                        I loved this book, couldn't put it down. No only do you learn a lot about crab fishing ,but you get an insight as to what makes the Hilstrand boys tick. The wild boys of the Bering Sea have some great stories to tell. They'll make you laugh then keep you on the edge of your seat. Go read it!
