To two years of interviewing and research in the Charleston, Oregon, area, Gilmore applies her training in folklore, her own life on the Oregon coast, and her descent from Norwegian shipbuilders. She focuses on the boats themselves, describing how they serve as a fisherman's vehicle, shelter, home, and companion. She has added a new introduction to the 1986 limited cloth edition, published by the University of Michigan Press. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
