Fishing and Folk : Life and Dialect on the North Sea Coast, Paperback / softback Book

Fishing and Folk : Life and Dialect on the North Sea Coast Paperback / softback


With enormous enthusiasm for the language of ordinary northerners, this scenic portrait of coastal peoples combines history, etymology, and recollections to record a folk culture that strives to survive against current worldwide trends of uniformity.

The examination delves deep into the boat and fishing traditions that shape this small angler community, including smuggling, the scenery, and the surrounding wildlife.

The increasing threat that globalization poses to these sea populations makes this an important preservation--as well as an excellent source of factual information and reference material about those who live on the North Sea.
