The Legendary Crab Fisherman, Our Hero, Our Dad

  • customer reviews
The electrifying behind-the-scenes story of the Deadliest Catch star, from his own two sons

Prior to his untimely death in 2010, Captain Phil Harris was the larger-than-life star of the Discovery Channel’s hit show Deadliest Catch.

But as wild as Phil could be, he was a loving father, a devoted friend, a steadfast captain, and a hero to audiences around the world. This is his story, as fascinating and outrageous off camera as it was onscreen.
