Book Review: Seaworthy by Linda Greenlaw

The famed author Linda Greenlaw has another book out.  It is entitled "Seaworthy: A Swordboat Captain Returns to the Sea".  After spending a number of years living on Isle au Haut - a secluded island off the coast of Maine - the former fishing boat captain decided to return to the sea for another fishing excursion. This trip would provide her and her crew with many challenges to include landing in a Canadian jail!  Linda Greenlaw was the female boat captain depicted in the book The Perfect Storm: A True Story of Men Against the Sea by Sebastian Junger.  The book was later made into a movie called The Perfect Storm starring George Clooney.  Greenlaw is also the author of other books as well to include The Hungry Ocean: A Swordboat Captain's Journey and All Fisherman are Liars: True Adventures at Sea.
