Publishers Description: The story of two brothers, Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand, who are maverick fisherman on the Bering Sea. They share the skippering duties on board their family-operated vessel, the Time Bandit. They are totally outrageous characters, taking on what is known to be the most dangerous job in the world. The Bering Sea is dangerous and mercurial and can steal years from a fisherman's life and Time Bandit is the name of the fishing vessel the brothers use to hook the alaskan King Crabs. In pursuit of their daily catch, the brothers brave ice floes and heaving waves 60ft high, the perils of 1000lb steel crab traps thrown about by the wind and the constant menace of open water. The details of their childhood make you wonder how they ever lived past the age of ten! This amazing story, co-written with Malcolm MacPherson, brings to life the heart-in-your-throat existence of the Hillstrand brothers.
