Michael Schumacher recreates the circumstances surrounding the terrible storm of November 1966 that broke the mighty freighter in half, sending twenty-five of the Morrell’s crew to their deaths and consigning the surviving four to the freezing raft where all but one would perish. Schumacher’s vivid narrative captures every harrowing detail of the Morrell’s demise, finally doing justice to this epic shipwreck.
