Perfect Storm : A True Story of Men Against the Sea (Paperback) (Sebastian Junger)
about this item
It was the storm of the century, boasting waves over one hundred feet high—a tempest created by so rare a combination of factors that meteorologists deemed it "the perfect storm." In a book that has become a classic, Sebastian Junger explores the history of the fishing industry, the science of storms, and the candid accounts of the people whose lives the storm touched. ?The Perfect Storm? is a real-life thriller that makes us feel like we've been caught, helpless, in the grip of a force of nature beyond our understanding or control.
A real-life thriller that leaves us with the taste of salt on our tongues and a terror of the deep.
