Publisher: OREGON STATE UNIV. PRESS, Oct 2008

Synopsis
A memoir that recounts 30 summers of fishing Alaska's Cook Inlet. Bender describes his parallel careers as a commercial gill-netter & a professor of American literature. B&W illus by Tony Angell; 6x9 inches, 336 pgs.

More Information
Bender's narrative celebrates the fishing life as he knew it; it also explores issues of sustainability in the commercial salmon industry.

The only book on Cook Inlet's drift fishery, Catching the Ebb will appeal to readers interested in the sea or in the Pacific Northwest. In addition to its stories of people, boats and the fishing life, the memoir addresses a question Bender posed in Sea-Brothers, a history of American sea fiction: Can we restrain our heedless pollution of the sea and avoid depleting the ocean resources?
