    Big Toe Joe: The Legend of Cannery Row and selected poems composed on a journey from Nampa, ID to Point Lobos, CA Author: Mike Shipman Paperback: 54 pages Publisher: Blue Planet Photography, LLC; 1 edition (January 2020) Language: English Product Dimensions: 5 x 7 x .25 inches Shipping Weight: 16 oz Hand made book, pamphlet stitched, printed and bound by the author Signed by Author All legends have a beginning, and this tale is no different. That truth is stranger than fiction is not an unfamiliar truth when considering the vast open sea and those who traverse it, mining it for its many riches, physical and spiritual, where strange tales dwell of thrilling perils and discoveries, treasure and romance, far removed from the drudgeries of every day existence. Who has not heard of the name of John Steinbeck, Great American Novelist? Who has not heard the name Ed Ricketts, a legend in his own right as a student and protector of Monterey Bay? But who has heard the name of Joe Farallon, later to be known as Big Toe Joe? Maybe a smaller audience than his friends Steinbeck and Ricketts. No account of this man or his deeds exists in any source but this one....the question of who was Big Toe Joe will be answered in the following pages and you will become acquainted with this unsung hero of Cannery Row.
