Whether you personally choose one out of a tank at an upscale restaurant or break his claws with a hammer at a seafood dive, the American lobster remains the Northeast's most commercially valuable animal. Tragically, both overfishing and environmental concerns threaten one of the most enduring and endearing of Northeastern professions--lobstering.

In his latest work, Peter K. Prybot, a Gloucester lobsterman himself for forty-six years, writes boldly and passionately about hi calling. With an insider's grasp of the details, he spins for l and lubbers a fascinating narrative about the lobster industry, introducing its pioneers, its development and even some of today's salt-crusted lobstermen. Personally concerned with the future of his profession, Prybot writes with hope for the future, but he keeps a keen eye on the dangers that threaten this great American heritage.

Witty, funny and at times heart-wrenching, Prybot's tale of the intertwined lives of the American lobster and the men who chase it is a testament to Gloucester's deeply-rooted ties to the ocean and its marine life.
