qUtterly compulsive and unputdownable--the most exciting, authentic, and humanly moving of all the recent Storm books. Brilliantly paced and perfectly balanced. . . . Carrier is a marvelously trustworthy narrator. . . . A terrific book.q--Jonathan Raban, author of Passage to Juneau: A Sea and Its Meanings and Bad Land: An American Romance qA wonderful story. An extremely well-written account of the events as I knew them. I commend Jim Carrier for a magnificent job.q--Jerry D. Jarrell, Director, National Hurricane Center In October 1998, the majestic schooner Fantome came face-to-face with one of the most savage storms in Atlantic history. The last days of the Fantome are reconstructed in vivid and heartbreaking detail through Jim Carrier's extensive research and hundreds of personal interviews. What emerges is a story of courage, hubris, the agony of command, the weight of lives versus wealth, and the advances of science versus the terrible power and unpredictability of nature.Heartbreaking and horrifying, this story wona#39;t let go.
