Description - Fishcamp by Nancy Lord

In Fishcamp, Nancy Lord shares with us the natural and cultural history of the place near Cook Inlet, Alaska, where she and her partner have made a living, and a life, salmon fishing for the past eighteen years. With poetic cadence and magical tone, Lord writes of her life from June to August, days filled with the mending of nets, the muscle-wrenching labor of the catch, the exquisite pleasure of an improvised hot-tub, and the often subtle beauty of the inlet's flora and fauna. Woven throughout Lord's adventures is the deeper history of the region - stories and legends of the native Dena'ina people; anecdotes about past and current residents; descriptions of their neighbors, both human and animal, who, like Lord and her partner, live with fish.
