9780618127276: Untamed Seas: One Woman's True Story of Shipwreck and Survival

One late autumn day in 1982, the fifty-eight-foot yacht TRASHMAN set sail on a routine trip from Annapolis to Florida, with Deborah Scaling and four others aboard. When the boat sailed into a seventy-knot gale, it went down quickly, leaving the crew adrift in the Atlantic in a rubber dinghy that was quickly surrounded by sharks. Five harrowing days and nights later, when a Russian freighter finally came to their rescue, only two crew members remained. Powerful, adrenaline-charged, utterly consuming, UNTAMED SEAS is a brave, unforgettable story that plunges to the depths of the human psyche and surfaces with the strength to survive.

Review:

"A riveting and frightening true story told with startling candor and power. I read it without breathing." -- Dodge Morgan, author of The Voyage of American Promise

"[Untamed Seas] makes most other accounts of shipwreck and survival seem like cotton candy. I couldn't put it down." -- Lawrence Millman, author of Last Places
