Drawing on historical documents and contemporary accounts and on exclusive interviews with Carlsen's family, Delaney opens a window into the world of the merchant marine. With deep affection, and respect, for the weather and all that goes with it, he places us in the heart of the storm, a "biblical tempest" of unimaginable power. He illuminates the bravery and ingenuity of Carlsen and the extraordinary courage that the 37-year-old captain inspired in his stalwart crew.

Another Great Listen from Frank Delaney

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 08-25-06

I listened to Mr. Delaney's book "Ireland" and throughly enjoyed it. I decided to listen to this book because of that previous listen and enjoyed this book also. I liked the view point of the events through Mr. Delaney as a boy and the effects it had on him and his family. He's a great story teller. Mr. Delaney's narration is the icing on the cake. I'm looking forward to his next work.
