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.”
