In Skipjack, Christopher White spends a pivotal year with three memorable captains as they battle man and nature to control the fate of their island villages and oyster fleet. Through these lively characters, White paints a vivid picture of life on a skipjack, a wooden oystering sailboat . But this last vestige of American sailing culture is rapidly dying. These captains must set aside their rivalry to fight for their very livelihood. With so many obstacles, it is not certain the fleet will survive the season. Hinging on its success, the vi ability of the nation's premiere estuary and the survival of a classic American town hang dangerously in the balance.

Christopher White has written several books and has had articles appear in National Geographic, Exploration, and many other publications.
