In Part I of a two-part article, Grant describes five weeks she spent with her uncle and a fishing crew on Topsail Island in 1934. She was seven years old. The crew was made up of thirty-five back-country watermen and farmers, who stayed on the Island from August to November. The crew fished for mullets, and each man cleaned and packed his own shares of the catch. Shares were divided into a sort of monetary system dependent upon a creman's rank, and what supplies he provided to the expedition.
