The amazing true life adventure story of Alaskan fishermen Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand, a pair already wellknown to viewers of the popular television reality series 'Deadliest Catch'.
Natives of tiny fishing hamlet Homer, Alaska, sons of a hard-bitten, highly successful fisherman, and born with brine in their blood, Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand couldn't imagine a life without a swaying deck underfoot and a harvest of mighty Alaskan king crabs waiting to be pulled from the ocean floor. In pursuit of their daily catch, the brothers brave ice floes and heaving waves 60 feet high, the perils of 1000 pound steel traps thrown about by the punishing wind, and the constant menace of the open, hungry water.
If you've watched their exploits on TV's 'Deadliest Catch', you've only scratched the surface. To read TIME BANDIT is to step into their skins, smell the sea air, feel the frigid wind, and know with all your senses the exhilarating and terrifying life on the edge.
Here is the Hillstand's own heartfelt hymn to the brutally hard, gloriously independent, and mysteriously soul-satisfying life that has earned them their daily bread and defined their existence. By turns raucous and reflective, enthralling and anguished, suspenseful, and wise, TIME BANDIT chronicles a larger-than-life love affair as old as civilisation itself - a love affair between striving, willful man and inscrutable, enduring nature.
