Burning the Iceburg: The Alaskan Fisherman's Novel
by Whit Deschner

BURNING THE ICEBERG is the bawdy memorable portrait of the Alaskan salmon industry: The fishing, the fishermen, the strikes, the Japanese takeover. It is an unabashed collage of characters: Norwegians, Eskimos, drunks, and opportunists, who, like the salmon they chase, strive in their own means and encounter their own unseen nets. BURNING THE ICEBERG is the vivid and distinguished portrayal of the passing of an era.

Comments from readers:
