Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0969793707, Paperback)Privately Published By Author, Lord's Cove, Deer Island. NB, Canada. Paraphrased from the book's rear cover and its text . "This is a book on commercial fishing ships of the New Brunswick's Bay of Fundy, in particular those fishermen living and working out of Deer Island. John Gilman's grandfather, John Adams (1874 - 1965) of Lambertville, Deer Island, was one of these men having had a 57 year career where he was the master of 12 sardine carriers. The stories presented cover an era from the late 1800's to the present day. The book is a wonderful reference item of the many boats and the men who sailed them, the shipyards that built them, and the factories they sailed to, of an era that is fast fading into history. There are over 135 b/w photo-illustrations of the ships and men in this industry and is a definite advantage for those doing genealogical researches related to this area of New Brunswick, Canada. A unique and fascinating work which remains one of the least known, but, authoritative sources on this era's aspect of commercial fishing in New Brunswick's Bay of Fundy. It contains biographical data on builders and owners of the fihing vessels."
