Back to the Sea (Kindle Edition)

Price £1.93 - Fully Illustrated

Buy now through the Amazon Kindle Store

Peter F AnsonPeter Anson loved the North East of Scotland and the fisher folk associated with these parts. The harsh life and environment seemed to have called him from his middle class upbringing. He was an educated man who in the midst of the fishing industry must have stuck out like a sore thumb and yet he liked and respected the fisher folk and by all accounts they and the community took to him

This is a compelling story of a man that had everything and gave it all up to do as he wished. His calling was to serve as a monk and in this role he travelled to many places where he was able to use his talents as a writer and artist. Numerous books were published. He became expert in the ways of the fisher folk in these parts and has left a legacy for all that may be interested in the past
