The title is CASTING INTO THE LIGHT----TALES OF A FISHING LIFE.
It is 310 pages long, and I remember when she first started worrying over and working on it.
It is an honest and truthful book.
It will be a classic. You don't want to pass it up.

Oh Frank I have duplicates of everything. Duplicate books usually go in a 1200pound fireproof safe, not that I'm paranoid (or is that paranormal?) or anything like that.
You're talking about a man who has four old 4X4's, two electrical systems, two water systems, two pairs of shoes, pants, underwear, and two teeth.
Always been like that Frank. Reckon it's because I grew up with nothing.

Good plan Mule! I too have plenty of books and extra ones. When the power grid goes down from a solar flare or an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) and all the Kindles 'n computers die, I'm gonna be the Librarymeister!
Hey...how'd you get twice as many teeth as the rest of us?

Mule, you grew up with nothing? I used to put my chewing gum on the bed post over night. Momma had a recipe for "road kill soup". I used to pick night crawlers nights and blueberries during the day, getting a dollar/quart no dirt for each. Winters I got $2.75 for each muskrat pelt. Cats were a dollar. (if not too shot up). I used to turn my underwear inside out after a week. If they sent me home from school, the truant officer would not come looking as long as it was their idea. Just trap skunks, which, with a lot of black, could bring as much as $5. They always knew at school when I was trapping skunks.

SAL and FRANK----I think growing up with nothing handed to us on a silver platter is the main reason we appreciate and cherish the things that we have and have worked for.
There are many young people today who are in the same or much worse situations than we were, but there are many, given anything that they want, that will never have the feeling of appreciation that so many of us on this web site have earned.

I have had a very successful life. It was inspired by poverty. Still, I feel a certain bitterness over having lived with so much fear. Confusing, I am not sure if fear was good for my wife and I when we were so young. I remember when the pediatrician told us our baby needed a dennis brown splint which was 35 dollars that we didn't have. Joyce and I cried.

I am not hearing anything about her book. Could be that it will be locally important title that never gets off the Vineyard. If it was self-published then it will only sell a few copies to friends on the island. Books, especially these days, are a hard sell. Book stores are boarding up.

I just saw an "ad" for it from somewhere come through my inbox. Deleted it but thought possibly The Fisherman? or Stripers Edge.... ? some type of inbox fluff so at least someone is pushing it a bit.

Right after yesterday's post I too had a promo for her book in my e-mail that was put up by The Fisherman. I was glad to see it. Frankly, I am excited for her because she has been a luminary in surf fishing all her life and certainly deserves recognition. There is an excitement in a first book that will buoy her self esteem the rest of her life. Glad it is happening.

Were I not too damned lazy I would write a book based upon interviews with some of the successful drum fishermen of past and preset days whom I know. They seem to be more reluctant to share then a number of striper guys.....but that's why they make scotch and IPAs, info can be coerced!
Do it Al. Drum fishermen might be a little reluctant, but you could milk blood out'a an onion. Call of the Surf is a true classic as is Adventures in Angling, A Book of Salt Water Fishing, both written by Van Campen Heilner.

Good fishing books are a minority. But when you do find one it can be precious. Wish I had a copy of Janet's new book. Does it have a publisher? Or is it self-published?

Hi Frank. Janet?s book is published by Pantheon Books a division of penguin Random house. I just received my copy and am going to try my hardest time save it for Hatteras reading in between tides !! From a quick glimpse this book appears to be absolutely top notch . Definitely a must have. My thoughts and prayers are with her as her mother is a dear friend of mine and my Cape family as she is under Hospice care. As much as it sucks Mr. D. You said it best Nothing is forever. Cherish the moment

The future in outdoor sports is with women because in women there is the greatest potential for increased growth/participation. Janet's doing a book, especially from her advantageous background, meaning she has been there, is good for fishing. We need more women in both fishing and hunting.
