NEW SIGNING!!! Today we welcome Ash Walker to the family.
We learned about different kinds of ships, different forms of fishing, and different geographical formations, like a bight. The book is a series of short stories about a young man who works with the fish patrol capturing poachers. He has several scary run ins with shady characters, some of which wanted to take his life for interfering in their illegal fishing.
Throughout, the theme of justice prevails, and especially in the second to last story we get to see a nice dose of mercy mixed in. My rating of 3 stars likely shows how much I was affected by the kids' mixed reception. I really enjoyed the stories and plan to read more of London's books this summer.

Okay, now I'm thoroughly confused - do I like Jack London or not?! Some of what I'd read recently comes across as racist - and then, this -? This was wonderful, about his experiences on the fish patrol as a 16 year old, mind you, which only adds to my distress, because he's a plucky, indomitable lad, someone I could not help rooting for.

At his best, London writes with verve and colour, whatever your opinion of the man himself. Nov 13, Karen Chung rated it really liked it. Interesting vignettes taken from London's two years working with the California Fish Patrol in his youth.
London is very good at building up suspense, then seeing it to a satisfying conclusion. The character voices of the reader I listened to it as a Librivox audio book were mostly a bit too high and nasal to be convincing, but the rest of the reading, in the role of the narrator, was very good and well suited to the genre. Sep 30, Uncle Dave Avis rated it it was amazing. This is a good read that is very different to novels written today. Interesting items pop up like shoelaces made from porpoise hide and other things we don't remember from a century or more ago.
For those who know the San Francisco Bay area, the places should be familiar. There was actually countryside between the towns and a whole lot less people. Interesting stories of the Chinese, Italians, Sweeds, and Greek fishermen. There were actually sturgeon and salmon in the bay too! Good book for a refr This is a good read that is very different to novels written today.
Jack London: South Sea Tales
Good book for a refreshing read. Jack London's early adventures make for a fresh innocent read. This should be a classic. The stories reflect a time when you were as good as you proved yourself to be and you could be what you worked to be. Sep 25, Robert rated it really liked it. Super fun, short read. Typical London writing. Suspenseful, funny, educational, and real. I really feel like I know more about the early days on my own San Francisco Bay. May 05, Bruce Deming rated it really liked it. Tales of the Fish Patrol was an interesting look into life on San Francisco Bay during scrappier times when brawls, guns, knives and piracy wasn't uncommon.

I picked this book up to read after a visit from a independent book sales rep when working in Berkeley as a buyer for a small bookstore chain and then visited the publisher in Oakland who was living in a historic house on 14th Street where Jack London himself had lived which bore a plaque on the front verifying the house was indeed a historic one. The publisher Bob Martens was a collector of Jack London and had rooms full of first and later editions and at one time claimed to be in possession of a first edition of every Jack London title printed.
Bob had an AB Dick printer in his basement and was reprinting low cost paperback facsimile editions on acid free paper because he was a fan and thought the titles worthy of remaining in circulation. Our store carried and promoted what he had printed with particular interest to titles with Bay Area settings so I thought it would be smart to read this and it was fun to display a local interest title that wasn't necessarily the most beautiful thing by cover but had a good story with a bit of scrappy local history. What do ya know people bought and read it and it wasn't a commonly displayed item in most bookstores.
Tales of the Fish Patrol IS a good portrait of the bay and exciting read. The Patrol searched for fisherman who were breaking laws like fishing on Sundays or catching more than their limits. I learned so much while reading this book to my brother. He lives N.
Until reading this and doing some research in the evenings, I had no idea shrimp and salmon had lived and been fished in the Bay. I printed a map of the Bay and kept handy so I knew the towns and places in the stories. Although it was a book written at an earlier time, the stories are still of interest. It's an easy read and I think anyone would enjoy it.

May 06, David Macpherson rated it liked it. These are related stories about three people stationed out of San Fransisco who are tasked with stopping poachers taking fish and clams and what not. It is stolidly written and pretty racist but still a good view of the world of law enforcment a hundred years ago. One fascinating aspect is that the fish patrol make no money but live off of capturing poachers and getting either the reward or a portion of their court fine. The sense of right and wrong is very unclear as there is the sense that wha These are related stories about three people stationed out of San Fransisco who are tasked with stopping poachers taking fish and clams and what not.
The sense of right and wrong is very unclear as there is the sense that what is proper and acceptable is not completely defined yet. That part is interesting, the attitude towards the Chinese is pretty awful though. Probably actually a 3. Most of it very enjoyable, especially when they are trying to outwit and outsail the Greek and Chinese salmon poachers. Tales from Jack London's youth when he was earning to enough money to finish high school. He'd started out as a poacher but was persuaded to come over on to the fish patrol's side.
Both were dangerous but it seemed a lot safer on the legal side. Very fine sailing stories from a skillful sailor and a skillful storyteller.
