Where there's an ocean, there are always adventure tales to be told. In the good old-fashioned tradition of story-telling, S.O.S. collects 19 intriguing tales--both fictional and true, classic and contemporary. From the depths of H. G. Wells's The Abyss to the tempest in Sebastian Junger's The Perfect Storm, these spine-tingling stories are as varied as the moods of the sea itself. A sturdy book with rounded corners and large type, S.O.S. is perfect for a week-long sail or an afternoon adventure in the armchair. Selected Contributors: Joseph Conrad, Stephen King, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Sebastian Junger, Paul Theroux, Ernest Hemingway.
