Ordinary Women, Extraordinary Lives - In the Fishing Industry
Heberley, Heather
Published by Cape Catley Ltd. This first edition published 2005 Good condition. A delightful and inspiring story of New Zealand women, many of whom call themselves 'just ordinary'. How very far from ordinary they and their lives actually are becomes plain from the beginning. Courage, strength of character, humour - here are so many touching stories. They range from hands-on fishing and diving to the many skills needed in aspects of management, research and policing the seas in New Zealand waters and around the world. Heather Heberley opens up a whole world of science and enterprise, threaded through with love stories and the seizing of triumph from disaster. In Ordinary Women Extraordinary Lives she celebrates a vital part of the natural world and women who belong in it.
