'Hull's Fishing Heritage' is a unique nostalgic account, brought to you by Wharncliffe Books. Focusing upon three decades of research, the fishing community of Hessle Road represents a unique breed of people who endured hardship from the elements in times of peace and danger from the enemy in times of war. Within the world of the fishing families of Hull is a whole universe of humanity. Based upon interviews, a range of colourful tales are presented to convey Hull's Fishing Heritage. Survivors of a wrecked trawler stagger ashore in Iceland during the bitter winter of 1910 - this hair raising tale is based upon Skipper Brewer's handwritten log. Another skipper, 'Mad' Rilatt, outwits German U-Boats in the First World War. A suicide mission to war-torn Norway in 1940 aboard a former Hull trawler. Amy Johnston flew to Australia single-handed - she is revealed as a Hessle Road girl. Cowboys of the Arctic Circle, shows how Hollywood influenced the young trawler lads.'Hull's Fishing Heritage' is, all in all, a sparkling assortment of vibrant stories that reflect Hull's Fishing Heritage.
