Description: No other natural environment can match the danger of a hostile sea. This remarkable new collection brings together over 60 eyewitness accounts of tragedy, error and survival on the high seas. It includes such modern-day incidents as the high-ocean dismasting of Kingfisher 2, Richard van Pham's 100 days adrift in 2002, the Kursk submarine disaster and the Exxon Valdez, as well as both legendary and lesser-known historical events like the HMS Proserpine catastrophe, the wreck of the Medusa, and the spectacular hurricanes that have buffeted the Caribbean island of Montserrat. The Mammoth Book of Storms, Shipwrecks and Sea Disasters offers white-knuckle accounts of disaster and endurance, evoking the addictive drama of The Perfect Storm.
