For 2 years I've been working on a book with Sig Hansen, an Alaskan crab fisherman. Well, it's done now. North by Northwestern: A Seafaring Family on Deadly Alaskan Waters arrived in stores Tuesday March 30. You can read a free excerpt here:
Sig Hansen is a third-generation Norwegian-American fisherman who's become somewhat famous in the past five years on the Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch. The book is his life story woven with the story of his dad's immigration from Norway, along with a history of crab fishing in the Bering Sea. I'm proud of how it ended up.
