In this thrilling memoir, Tex Geddes describes his exploits as a hunter of basking sharks in the waters of the Minch during the 1950s, between the Inner and Outer Hebrides of Scotland. Using an adapted whaling harpoon, Geddes stalked these huge fish, often in perilous conditions, and engaged in other activities as well, such as crewing the local lifeboat, ring-net fishing, lobstering, deer-stalking, and salmon poaching. A fascinating examination of life in the Hebrides in the 20th century from a one-of-a-kind storyteller lauded for his unpredictable, cowboy-like antics, this autobiography is full of adventures and fantastic descriptions of a seagoing life in the islands.
