Summary
Sig Hansen is a star of the Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch, one of the most successful series in the history of cable TV--but these weatherworn fishermen have stories that don't come through on TV. For Sig Hansen and his brothers, commercial fishing is as much a part of their Norwegian heritage as their names. Descendants of the Vikings who roamed and ruled the northern seas for centuries, the Hansens' connection to the sea stretches from Alaska to Seattle and all the way to Norway. And after twenty years as a skipper on the commercial fishing vessel the Northwestern--which was his father's before him--Sig has lived to tell the tales. To be a successful fisherman year after year, you need to be a survivor, and this is the story of a family of survivors who, through the popularity of The Deadliest Catch, have become modern folk-heroes.--From publisher description
