From the rear cover: The story of the Kalk Bay Fishermen begins with the first explorers in False Bay through to the whaling, the shark fishing, the trawlers, the harbour construction and the invasion of purse-seiners. Over the decades the fishing families have survived the hardships of losing loved ones in boat disasters, the struggle for decent housing and the threat of the Group Areas Act. How long can this Traditional Way of Life continue against ever increasing pressure from a world governed by economics?” Numerous b&w photographs and illustrations.
