9780071486590: Dark Noon

Dark Noon is the mesmerizing re-creation of a fateful day at sea. It is also a story of the postwar American dream as experienced in the fishing village of Montauk, Long Island, where fish were money and where optimism and success went hand in hand. And it’s a story of the end of an era, when one terrible disaster changed the fishing culture of a prosperous port forever.

“Meticulously researched. A fascinating story.”--Distinction

“A first-rate reportorial job that builds to a taut and suspenseful climax of incredible detail. The harrowing description of men gaff-hooked out of the churning swells is unforgettable.”--The Independent

From the Back Cover:

“A riveting story not just of tragedy, but of survival and heroism.”--New York Post

When Captain Eddie Carroll put to sea on Labor Day weekend 1951, he didn’t know how many passengers were aboard his overloaded charter fishing boat. He didn’t know that an unpredicted storm would descend from a cloudless sky before the morning was over. He didn’t know how swiftly, then, his faith in his boat and his own abilities would be overturned.

Dark Noon is the mesmerizing re-creation of a fateful day at sea. It is also a story of the postwar American dream as experienced in the fishing village of Montauk, Long Island, where fish were money and where optimism and success went hand in hand. And it’s a story of the end of an era, when one terrible disaster changed the fishing culture of a prosperous port forever.
