When the summer sun rises over the Atlantic Ocean and warms the sands of Nantasket Beach, fun-seekers from all over eastern Massachusetts begin their trek to the town of Hull to claim a spot on the scenic shore for a day. For many Hull residents, though, the summer sunrise is the start of the workday, and a hard day's work in Hull can be a unique endeavor indeed. Hull's geography and powerful ties to the sea create the need for professions that few can imagine. Within Hull's small year-round population can be found lobstermen, harbormasters, anglers, some of the bravest Coast Guardsmen in the country, and more. What do these people do in an average day? Is there even such a thing as an average day? John Galluzzo, author of When Hull Freezes Over and The Golden Age of Hull, set out one summer to find the answers to these questions. With his pen, notepad, and a sturdy pair of sea legs, Galluzzo ventured out with ten Hull individuals and organizations as they went about their unusual work, and captured their stories for all to read and enjoy in this fascinating volume. Join Galluzzo as he samples a day in the life of a variety of Hull professionals, from sailing with the crew of the tall ship Kalmar Nyckel to riding with the Hull Police Department on an undercover sting operation.
