Summary
In late September 2015, Hurricane Joaquin bore down on the Bahamas, two cargo vessels were swallowed by the storm: El Faro, a 790-foot behemoth with a mostly American crew of thirty-three, and the Minouche, a 230-foot freighter with a dozen Haitian and Filipino sailors aboard. From the parallel stories of these ships and their final journeys, Tristram Korten weaves a remarkable tale of two veteran sea captains from opposite ends of the earth and the Coast Guard's battle against a storm that defied prediction, shining a light on the elite rescue swimmers trained for the most dangerous ocean missions. This is a moving and propulsive story of men in peril, the international brotherhood of mariners, and the breathtaking power of nature
