Rory Nugent’s “Down on the Docks”

Down at the Docks

Written by Rory Nugent
Social Science | Pantheon Publishers | February 2009

“There aren’t so many of those closed universes left in America, places where people share skill, custom, vocabulary, ethos, morality. Rory Nugent’s New Bedford is one of the holdouts, and it is described here with compassion and skill and humor. A classic American book”.
—Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy

“Lively, fascinating, and challenging. Rory Nugent has found the last of New Bedford’s indomitable fishermen, and the past comes roaring back to life just in time to make us think more deeply about the future of the seas.”
—Tony Hiss, author of The Experience of Place
