Random House, Inc. Having survived Borneo, Amazonia, and the Congo, the indefatigable Redmond O’Hanlon sets off on his next adventure: his own perfect storm, in the wild waters off the northern tip of Scotland. Equipped with a fancy Nikon, an excessive supply of socks, and no seamanship whatsoever, O’Hanlon joins the commercial fishing crew of the Norlantean, a deep-sea trawler, to stock a bottomless hull with their catch, even as a hurricane roars around them. Rich in oceanography, marine biology, and uproarious humor, Trawler is Redmond O’Hanlon at his finest.
Baker & Taylor The author of Into the Heart of Borneo describes his ocean-bound odyssey aboard a deep-sea fishing trawler from the northern coast of Scotland and his adventures with the ship's captain and five-man crew through the North Atlantic at the height of a terrifying storm.
