About the Book

When eight-year-old Cable Dent’s parents die unexpectedly, his grandfather, Phil, vows to raise him straight and strong, to make him a fine fisherman, respected among the fleet. The two live in Grandpa’s fisherman shack in the little coastal village of Port Orford, Oregon. With the help of his friend, Amy, Cable works through his grief and finds a new home.

He loves helping his grandpa on his fishing boat, the Tulla, and learning all there is to know about the sea. Then Grandpa suffers a stroke and Cable must take his knowledge and make a living for them both. Putting his heart and soul into the fishing life, he reaps the rewards and weathers the challenges.

A coming-of-age story for young readers, Port Orford’s Youngest Fisherman follows Cable Dent on his adventures as he overcomes adversity to become a successful fisherman and a man.
