Picks and Pans Review: Down to the Sea
by Joseph E. Garland
Among today's most attractively produced books are those published by David R. Godine of Boston, whose firm has outdone itself with the design of this photo-filled volume. The subtitle is "The Fishing Schooners of Gloucester," and the text is by a newspaperman who has skippered his own 35-foot schooner. He concludes, "The Gloucester schooners are gone...All gone, almost. But the men keep coming, the Gloucestermen, still doing business in great waters." For those who love the sea, these evocative pages will bring the smell of cold, briny spray. (Godine, $27.50)
