Written by Joy Seevers Priced $25.00 p&p $3.00
"The village community of Lakes Entrance is thrown into disarray when a member of a prominent fishing family disappears on the water. This book traces the reaction of family, friends and neighbours to the tragedy as a community is united in grief. In telling the story of the family coming to terms with the loss, the book includes a history of the fishing industry of the Gippsland Lakes and the nearby Bass Strait waters. The reader learns of the daily activities of fishing folk, their variegated skills, the way they predict the weather, and stories from the past which have been retold down the generations. The lifestyle of the village inhabitants is recreated from the inside, as they learn to cope with a livelihood which oscillates between tranquility and tragedy."
