AUTHOR

Mowat, Farley

SUMMARY

In The Grey Seas Under, Farley Mowat writes passionately of the courage of men and of the small oceangoing tug Foundation Franklin. From 1930 until her final voyage in 1948, the stalwart tug's dangerous job was to rescue sinking ships, first searching for them in perilous waters and then bringing them back to shore. Battered by towering waves, dwarfed by the great ships she towed, blasted by gale-force winds and frozen by squalls of snow and rain, Foundation Franklin and her brave crew saved hundreds of vessels and thousands of lives as they patrolled the North Atlantic, including waters patrolled by U-boats in wartime.Mowat, whom The New York Times has called "a master storyteller," gives us an epic tale - a vigorous, dramatic picture of the eternal battle between men and the cruel sea. (6 X 9, 360 pages)Mowat, Farley is the author of 'Grey Seas Under The Perilous Rescue Missions of a North Atlantic Salvage Tug' with ISBN 9781585742400 and ISBN 1585742406.
