Time Bandit Book (Paperback)
SKU ID #95375
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.
