Nicaragua's Atlantic coast is domestic to the main risky of fish, the bull shark, a deadly predator with a fearsome urge for food and the single shark that swims in inland waters. Braving Nicaragua's hurricane-torn barren region of mangrove swamps, Edward Marriott joins the final surviving shark fishermen to sail in a dugout canoe and fish for sharks with a hand line.As Marriott charts the lifetime of the bull shark, its migrations, its voracious feeding styles, and the treasures it deals -- oil for supplementations, conceal for leather-based, and fins for soup -- he finds lives spent in worry and awe within the shadow of a monster that could sniff clean blood a mile away. He additionally tells a story of human greed: an elemental neighborhood, battered by means of civil struggle and ordinary failures, is now degraded past fix to the purpose of offering bounty for modern day pirates.A gripping narrative of possibility and experience, a poignant checklist of loss and corruption, Savage Shore confirms Marriott as considered one of our most unique and insightful go back and forth writers.
