What is it like to live in Down East Maine and work in the lobster industry? The extreme weather of the Maine coast, unreliable fishing seasons and an ever-present element of danger are just a few of the challenges encountered by lobster fishermen. They must adapt to constant change and balance exploiting the natural resource for personal profit with a duty to conserve lobster stocks for future generations. Despite the challenges, most would not trade the benefits of their job--from independence to unique pastimes like lobster boat races. From a family of four generations of lobster fishermen, Christina Lemieux Oragano provides a glimpse inside these lobstering communities and celebrates it for those lucky enough to live it--the trials, triumphs and even a few favorite lobster recipes from Down East. Paperback 160 pages
