The Hungry Ocean: A Swordboat Captain’s Journey, by Linda Greenlaw

Category:  biography, maritime, sailing

Subject/Topic: “Known to millions of readers of The Perfect Storm as the captain of the Hannah Boden, sister ship to the Andrea Gail, Linda Greenlaw is also known as one of the best sea captains on the East Coast. Here she offers an adventure-soaked tale of her own, complete with danger, humor, and characters so colorful they seem to have been ripped from the pages of Moby Dick.

“A beautiful book . . . a story of triumph, of a woman not only making it but succeeding at the highest level in one of the most male-dominated and most dangerous professions.” — Douglas Whynott, The New York Times Book Review

“An authentic, insightful account of the intensity of captaining a crew of strong men in an ocean which does what it wants.” — Daniel Hays, co-author of My Old Man and the Sea

“A crystal-clear account of fishing the Grand Banks in a modern swordfish boat. Greenlaw is an excellent captainand an excellent writer.” — John Casey, author of Spartina.”
