True Stories of Disaster and Survival on Alaska's High Seas
Spike Walker has spent more than a decade fishing in the subzero hell of Alaska's coastal waters. This collection – coming on the heels of his classic memoir Working on the Edge – is a testament to the courage of those who brave nature's wrath each fishing season, and to the uncontrolled power of nature herself.. The crewmen in Nights of Ice face a constant onslaught of roaring waves, stories-high swells, and life-stealing ice. Tested by the elements, these seamen battle for their vessels and their lives, on every page evincing a level of courage and a will to live seldom found elsewhere in modern society.
