Passengers and most of the crew left the S.S. FLYING ENTERPRISE when waves sent the freighter onto its side, but Captain Kurt Carlsen stayed aboard--aware that death could come at any time--to try to save the ship and its cargo. His "lone and heroic stand against the sea" made headlines in early 1952 and makes a perfect true-life story for Frank Delaney, who wrote the book with an ear for language, a quality that helps him spin a rip-roaring yarn as narrator. His rich descriptions, read with his hint of a storyteller's brogue, explain the facts clearly while bringing the setting alive for landlubbers.
