The Fish House Book:  Life on Ice in the Northland
     by Kathryn Nordstrom
        with an essay by Arnold R. Alanen

Fish houses are typically small in scale and simply built. Because of their utilitarian and functional features, they serve as examples of what scholars term “vernacular” buildings. But even though the form and construction of fish houses may be basic, a rich tradition of folklore, common sense, and science is associated with them. Ice fishing, in fact, often serves as the stuff of legend, and many of its practices are imbued with substantial doses of humor and levity. As revealed by the images that comprise the body of Kathryn Nordstrom’s book, some fish houses are so unique and idiosyncratic that they may be identified as “folk art on ice.” 
from the essay by Arnold Alanen

128 pages soft cover ~ 10" x 8 1/2" ~ full color with over 200 photographs featuring fish houses, fishing contests, winter activities, a fish house parade, and much more!
