For seven months, Joe Upton steered his 30-foot boat, the Doreen through the open channels and narrow, twisting passageways of Southeast Alaska, living the life of an itinerant commercial fisherman far from home. This is Upton’s award-winning account of that season–the lonely hours at sea as well as the close community of the fishing fleet; the sudden, violent storms and glorious days of sunshine; the difficult, frenzied work and quiet moments of contemplation. Alaska Blues endures as a powerful and enduring portrait of a time and place–of a people and their way of life and the haunting, beautiful shores that draw them back, season after season.
