Through Waves and Gales Comes Fishermenís Tales is a comprehensive oral history of the Lake Michigan commercial fishermen. Accounts and reflections of harrowing stories caught in violent storms, ice shoves, strange occurrences, and humorous stories that will give the reader insight to what a commercial fisherman went through to eek out a living on the Great Lakes. It will also give the reader a better understanding of what sort of challenges that befell commercial fishermen in the last seventy years, through many interviews and reflections by the few remaining commercial fishermen. The last chapter is all about the fishermen and their boats to which they plied the waters of Lake Michigan and Lake Superior to make a living in a waning industry.
