Read Mark Sundeen's North by Northwestern: A Seafaring Family on Deadly Alaskan Waters

Mark Sundeen's new book with the Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch star, Sig Hansen, promises to be a gripping story about enduring and thriving in the harshest conditions. Sundeen is returning to this year's Taos Summer Writers' Conference to teach two workshops: "The New Nonfiction: What Everyone is Reading and No One is Teaching" (weeklong) and "Mapping Memory: Finding Your Story" (weekend). As you might imagine, only a handful of spaces remain.

North by Northwestern: A Seafaring Family on Deadly Alaskan Waters

Congratulations, Mark!

"To be a successful fisherman, you need to be a mechanic, navigator, welder, painter, carpenter, and sometimes, a firefighter. To be a successful fisherman year after year, you need to be a survivor.

This is the story of a family of survivors; part memoir and part adventure tale, North By Northwestern brings readers on deck, into the dockside bars and into the history of a family with a common destiny. Built around a gripping tale of a deadly shipwreck like The Perfect Storm, North By Northwestern is the multi-generational tale of the Hansen family, a clan of tough Norwegian-American fishermen who, through the popularity of The Deadliest Catch, have become modern folk-heroes."
