Simply Fish
Baker, Jenny
Faber & Faber, London  1988 
 Paperback Basic fish cookery, on how to select, identify and cook all types of fish. B+W line drawings. 333 pages. enthusiastic review > I would strongly recommend this recipe book to anyone who wants to eat more fish. Whilst Rick Stein has managed to catch the nation's imagination and encourage a renaissance in seafood cuisine, and for encyclopedic knowledge I would recommend Jane Grigson's Fish Book, what Jenny Baker has managed to do is collect a book full of delicious recipes for most fish you may encounter that may be attempted in an average kitchen, with normal ingredients, within a reasonable length of time. This is one of those special cookery books which may be used everyday, not just for special occasions. Pages all clean % well bound, cover's a bit aged & some cook has enjoyed the benefits of this great little reference. Looks like a bit of a unique title in Aust.  Good/None issued

Deadliest Sea The Untold Story Behind the Greatest Rescue in Coast Guard History
Thompson, Kaylee
William Morrow & Company   
 Hardcover Soon after 2:00 A.M. on Easter morning, March 23, 2008, the fishing trawler "Alaska Ranger" began taking on water in the middle of the frigid Bering Sea. While the first mate broadcast Mayday calls to a remote Coast Guard station more than eight hundred miles away, the men on the ship's icy deck scrambled to inflate life rafts and activate the beacon lights, which would guide rescuers to them in the water. By 4:30 A.M., the wheelhouse of the "Ranger" was just barely visible above the sea's surface, and most of the forty-seven crew members were in the water, wearing the red survival suits--a number of them torn or inadequately sized--that were supposed to keep them from freezing to death. Every minute in the twenty-foot swells was a fight for survival. Many knew that if they weren't rescued soon, they would drown or freeze to death. 309 perfect pp  Excellent/Excellent

How to Fish
Yates, Chris
Hamish Hamilton UK 2006 
 Hardcover 242pp, scattered foxing to compressed page edges, The book -Sitting on a riverbank, with rod and line, must count as one of the most relaxing and enjoyable - yet occasionally frustrating - experiences known to man. Chris Yates discovered the joys of fishing early in life and was quickly hooked by its pleasures. Many years later, he is still content to sit, day after day, observing the quirks of different fish and losing track of time. For him, fishing is much more than just a question of technique; sometimes it's about listening to nothing but your instincts, and at other times it's about enjoying the perfect cup of tea. And, it's always about not knowing how the day is going to unfold...There's no better guide for the uninitiated - and no better companion for those already familiar with the satisfactions of fishing - than Chris Yates. And, immersing yourself in "How To Fish" is almost as delightful an activity as fishing itself. the Author - Chris Yates is a photographer and an author, but first and foremost a fisherman. He was first inspired by the discovery of a monster carp in his village pond when he was five. Thirty years later, he caught what was then the biggest carp -- and the biggest fish -- in England and went on to write about his experiences in books, in his own magazine, in radio programmes and in the BBC2 series A Passion for Angling. He lives in south Wiltshire.   Very Good/Very Good

Dorothy Elizabeth : Building a Traditional Wooden Schooner
Duncan, Roger F
W. W. Norton & Company NY 200 
 Hardcover From the dust jacket: "This is the story of Dorothy Elizabeth, a 28-foot schooner. Particularly, it is the story of why to build a traditional wooden sailing vessel that relies on age-old methods and materials, yet also embraces newfangled technologies. But mostly it is the story of the people--the score of craftsmen and craftswomen, friends, and family--who give their skill, advice, support, and time to turn Dorothy Elizabeth from an idea into a graceful, seaworthy reality. You will meet Ralph Stanley of Southwest Harbor, Maine, one of the world's great designers and builders of traditional wooden boats, and a disarmingly plainspoken master craftsmen in the maritime Maine tradition. You will meet Mary Chandler Duncan, a poet and the author's wife, soul mate, and first mate. You will meet Nat Wilson, sail maker, who took time out from building topsails for the USS Constitution to build sails for Dorothy Elizabeth. You will meet Frank Luke, neighbor, boatyard owner, all-around helper, and the man who launched Dorothy Elizabeth. And you will meet many other singular people up and down the coast from Portland, Maine, to Lunnenberg, Nova Scotia and beyond, drawn together by the building of a boat. 240 pages, slight mark on dj  Excellent/Good

William Heinemann  2008 First Edition
 Paperback As New condition. "Never before or since has there been an experiment quite as bold as this. Eleven of the tiniest ships sailed for eight months over the roughest of seas, carrying fifteen hundred people, food for two years and all the equipment needed to build a colony of convicts in a land completely beyond their experience and imagination. In Portsmouth the fleet's preparation was characterised by disease, promiscuity and death. The journey itself was one of unbearable hardship, but also of extraordinary resilience, with the majority of settlers and exiles making it alive to the new colony at Sydney Cove. There, however, they faced their biggest challenge of all; conflict, starvation and despair."  As New
