Husbands, fathers, loners, and drug users, each man was lured to the nations most dangerous trade by the lucrative wages offered to those who dared to reap the harvest of the ocean.

In this compelling maritime tale of risk and danger, acclaimed journalist Douglas Campbell compassionately portrays the destinies of the men who lost their lives to the Atlantic and the lure of profits from clamming. From the tough and sometimes troubled young men on deck to their families on shore, and the courageous people who tried to rescue them, this narrative memorializes a way of life, and exposes the hazards of this dangerous trade.
