About the Author:

THEODORE TAYLOR (1921-2006), an award-winning author of many books for young people, was particularly known for fast-paced, exciting adventure novels. His books include the bestseller The Cay, Timothy of the Cay, The Bomb, Air Raid--Pearl Harbor!, Ice Drift, The Maldonado Miracle, and The Weirdo, an Edgar Award winner for Best Young Adult Mystery.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7 Up. Nobody writes sea stories like Taylor, and this collection of eight tales should satisfy his many fans. The pieces vary greatly in setting and period, with a wide range of characters and emotions. In the title story, young Scoot Atkins becomes trapped in the cabin when a rogue wave overturns her boat. Fighting her way out with the assistance of her brother, Scoot learns a great deal about herself and the sea. In "Out There," Danny Aldo, 17, faces ridicule when his glimpse of what he believes to be a large eel is transformed into a sea monster by a mocking police force. Nineteen-year-old Michael Trinity hunts down and destroys the great white shark that killed his father in "The Butcher." "Hauling Gold" focuses on Harry Brand, the middle-aged captain of an out-of-date ship, who gets a chance to redeem his reputation as an alcoholic via the shipment of gold bullion from South Africa to England. Overall, the stories are well written and intriguing, with "Rogue Wave" and "The Butcher" having the most appeal for young readers. Libraries needing more sea adventure need look no further than this intriguing collection.?Melissa Hudak, North Suburban District Library, Roscoe, IL
