'Fishermen and Fisheries of the San Juan Islands': This book is a must read

All of the old-time San Juan islanders are in for a treat. Three former local men have composed a work of art.

Their publication is “Fishermen and Fisheries of the San Juan Islands: Those Were the Good Ol’ Days.”

Terry Jackson, John Wade and Wally Botsford gathered an immense amount of information on the history of the fishing industry in the San Juans.

This is a work of art about an industry that is rapidly disappearing. Much of the history of the people and times is included.

This is a must read!
