Highliners / William McCloskey.


Upon its publication in 1979, Bill McCloskey's HIGHLINERS won acclaim and a cult following for its rousing, realistic portrayal of the world of the Alaska fishery. "Highliners" is the commercial fishermen's term for their own elite, the skippers and crews who bring in the biggest hauls. Set in Kodiak, HIGHLINERS brings into sharp relief the lives of the men and women who make their living catching salmon, king crab, halibut, and shrimp off the coast of Alaska.
