“I relived my own past reading Four Thousand Hooks. The way Adams describes seeing things for the first time through the eyes of a greenhorn crew member—the sights and smells, what it’s like to really feel work and exhaustion, being on your own as a young man in Alaska—brought back memories I didn’t know I had.”
– Sig Hansen, Captain of the NORTHWESTERN, as seen on DEADLIEST CATCH
