Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Here is a good book, and it merits the attention of those who love and respect the sea."—The New York Times
Booknews
Mowat, author of and nearly 40 other books, writes passionately of the courage of the men of the small oceangoing tug . From 1930 until 1948, the tug's job was to rescue sinking ships in the North Atlantic. Mowat's account paints a dramatic picture of the battle between men and the cruel sea. Annotation c.
