Stories of Sailors in the Clutch of the SeaEdited by Tom Lochhaas Treacherous Waters is a collection of riveting, real life stories of adventure, loss, and survival at sea.
Garnered from among the best writing about sailing and the sea from the past 40 years, it transports readers to remote polar waters, lee shores, forbidding capes, and into the hearts of tempests. Here is triumph, disaster, love, courage, guilt, rescue, and death as captured by Webb Chiles (The Open Boat), Rob Mundle (Fatal Storm), Jim Carrier (The Ship and the Storm), Gordon Chaplin (Dark Wind), Tami Oldham Ashcroft (Red Sky in Mourning), and 15 others.
