More Information
From Seattle Socialite to Commercial Fisherwoman--Hazel Stone's Fishing Diaries from 1940s Alaska. She had never fished a day in her life, but newly married Hazel Stone and her equally inexperienced husband, Carl, headed off on the adventure of a lifetime--to earn a living fishing in Alaska. Accustomed to the easy life of a socialite in Seattle, Hazel adapted with amazing resilience to the harsh conditions, mentioning only in passing such extremes of her situation as cooking with icicles hanging in the galley, gutting and cleaning hundreds of fish, and endless rain. Oh, and her husband seems to drink quite a bit, too. Hazel's niece, author Arlene Lochridge, interweaves fascinating insights and adds historical perspective, including the effects of World War II.

REVIEW:
A fascinating window into life as a commercial fisherwoman in the 1940s. The historical references to the Alaskan landscape and the nature of fisher people at that time reinforce my knowledge of the history of Alaska fishing. -- --Corey Arnold, Crab Fisherman, Deadliest Catch, Discovery Channel

A Fish Out of Water perfectly captures the bygone era of America's last frontier--Alaska in the 1940s--through the eyes of one gutsy lady. ------ Tom Thompson, president, Anacortes Museum Foundation

Get a glimpse of a rougher Alaska, where men and their families scratched out a hardscrabble living from the sea or the forest. Arlene Lochridge presents a gritty and very readable view of this earlier Alaska--tiny wilderness outposts, rough and tumble towns, and a remarkable woman dealing with a full plate of challenges. ---- --Joe Upton, author of Alaska Blues
