The New York Times Book Review…top-notch history. Smart, well written, meticulously researched and a lot of fun.
A terrific true tale, well told.

Using extensive primary sources in the form of journals, reports, letters, and photographs, Sandler has pieced together a stirring and evocative retelling of this historical adventure. The writing draws readers into both the suspense of reaching the struggling whalers in time as well as the dire, life-threatening conditions that the rescuers themselves faced.

This story has everything young readers would relate to...danger, suspense, daring heros and great historic photos to bring the story to life. Best of all, it is history. I bought this for my 12 year old grandson, but read it myself first and would definitely recommend it.
