DESCRIPTION



Knee deep in Seaweed The Final Chapter 1960-1997
Authored by Mr. Hawk Hickok Hickman

This book describes, in a humorous manner, a period of time, 1960 to 1997, and a unique summertime occupation, Irish Sea Mossing, in a small seaside community approximately 30 miles south of Boston Massachusetts, on the Atlantic Ocean. The book describes the author's discovery of this unique job and his total embracing of it for the better part of 25 years.

During this story you will meet many of the other young men who shared in the times and activities described in this book. Irish Sea Mossing was brought to the Scituate shores by Irish immigrants during the late 1800s. Recognizing the same underwater plant that they had used to thicken their Blanc Mange pudding in Ireland, they knew that they could gather it and sell it to food manufacturers for its food binding abilities.

Soon a thriving business developed as the local lads went out in their dories and daily gathered the moss during each summer season. Mossing became an integral part of the community as an addition to lobstering, clamming and fishing. The industry continued until 1997, at which time modern technology and foreign markets dictated an end to this wonderful time.

Join us in this book as we reminisce and relive our wonderful times. As the final sentence in our book reads, "We will go down to the sea no more. Our day is gone, perhaps never to return. But oh what times we had!
