Camden author Ali Farrell has released her second book, “Pretty Rugged,” which sheds light on the many women working in Maine's commercial fishing industry. The 2-year process includes many stories of the lives of Maine fishermen: authentic stories of dangerous situations faced out on the water; the realities of the fishing lifestyle; and family history on generations of local Maine fishermen; the tight-knit fishing communities; and the current state of lobster fishing in North Atlantic Waters. Local Maine photographers provided views of fishing life in Maine. For more information, visit
