Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Continuing his pulse-pounding Adrenaline series, editor Clint Willis offers a sundry lot of adventures and mishaps at sea. These true stories range from tales of nautical storms, submarine disasters, and shipwrecks, to stories of underwater archaeology and salvage. The contributors list is nothing short of awesome: Rick Bass, Jack London, Sebastian Junger, Leo Tolstoy, Gabriel García Márquez, and Jack London, to name a few.
KLIATT
The sea is fascinating and frightening at the same time. Water that is calm and peaceful at one moment can change to violent turbulence in the blink of an eye. These stories by and large present a more evil aspect of the sea. In Stephen Crane's "The Open Boat," four men struggle to survive days at sea, usually within sight of land. The last hours of the Titantic are explored in "Every Man for Himself." Edward Beach looks at submarine life in combat. Excerpts from classics such as Moby Dick and Treasure Island are also included. Many views of the sea are presented, both fiction and nonfiction, covering many years. If someone is very interested or involved in the sea, this is the collection for them; for others, perhaps not.
