The American Fisherman
How Our Nation's Anglers Founded, Fed, Financed, and Forever Shaped the U.S.AAudiobook CD - 2016
Willie Robertson persuasively argues that America became what it is today in no small part because of the anglers that call it home. From harvesting New England cod, to fly fishing for Yellowstone trout, to raising Pacific Northwest salmon, the fishing industry has long played an essential role in the establishment of many of the nation's earliest ports, most notably along the East Coast. Robertson explores how fishing has informed culture, in literature, movies, and television, from classics like The Old Man and the Sea, A River Runs Through It, and Moby-Dick to The Perfect Storm, In the Heart of the Sea, and The Deadliest Catch, to popular local television fishing programs from coast to coast. Robertson also analyzes the economics of this $50 billion annual business which supports a host of industries, including tourism and manufacturing, as well as conservationism.
