If that doesn't seem fascinating to you, you have another thing coming. Moe is an amazing storyteller and reveals much about the history of commercial fishing in Alaska through a very descriptive and personable narrative that can be understood by any layperson. She tells great stories of the crews she's been involved with and their dynamics as well being a woman involved in a very male dominated profession. Moe has a passion for fishing and the sea and she shares this with you in her zine. This is her story of being on the job and 'how she got xtra tuf' on a few different episodes of labor disagreements that held up work (technically not "strikes") over many years.

Fascinating reading as she combines her artistic and DIY sensibilities with labor tactics in order to achieve the fishermen's goals and get everyone back to work!
