A freezing, one-hundred-mile-an-hour, northwest hurricane, and we are unable to steer the boat...now what would the skipper do?' Boldly splashing through memories of the frigid, turbulent waters of the Alaskan Peninsula, author Dr. Roger Holmberg transports readers back into a place in time without speeding cars and easy-access groceries. In this placea remote village on the small, Alaskan Sanak Island sustenance fishing reigned supreme, and the only way to survive was to engage with a crew and a reliable craft to seek out the scaly target. Only chance will say if they can catch enough to make it through the bitter winter months. And only God knows what lengths the family must go to provide for themselves if the fishermen don't succeed. It is in this place that Dr. Holmberg recounts with great fondness and nostalgia a way of life that now no longer exists, a way of life that is now just a memory. Crafting stories out of the dredges of his memory, Dr. Holmberg paints vivid images for his readers that will allow them to vicariously experience the triumph of collecting full tanks of crabs and full nets of salmon, the pain of marriage difficulties brought on by busy work schedules and substance abuse, and the joy and restoration that comes with turning his life (and the lives of his family members) over to the Lord. The Early Years of an Alaskan Fisherman's Adventures casts a net over the hearts of readers and pulls them into his personal story: the story of his early years on the Alaskan frontier; a story shared by all members of this memory land.
