Twenty years after his greenhorn days in William McCloskey's
bestselling novel "Highliners," Hank Crawford stands tall as a
respected fishing captain in Kodiak, Alaska.
Set amongst the tumult of the early 1980s, "Raiders "follows the
struggles of the Alaskan fishermen as they regain control of their
fishing grounds from the fleets of foreign companies, who have been
plundering their bays. But such companies aren't deterred, and
instead contract American boats to catch the fish for them. In
order to keep his family afloat--he swears--Hank signs on with a
Shunned as a traitor by his peers, Hank keeps on fishing. Their
disgust and his tainted ethics will all be worth it for the chance
to keep on fishing. But when Hank begins to suspect that his new
employers are playing a political game--and playing him as the
pawn--he must confront the possibility that in order to find
redemption, he'll have to sacrifice all he has.
In this masterful finale to the "Highliners "series, McCloskey
takes on the all-too-real horrors of the seafaring life: storms
that can sink a ship, giant fish that can snap a man's arm. For
anyone in love with the Alaskan backdrop, the feel of hauling in
fish, or traveling the ever-changing sea, "Raiders "is a story to
read, cherish, and never forget.
