Most people familiar with the name Bernie Webber associate him with the miraculous rescue of 32 men off of the stern of the Pendleton, made famous in the book and movie The Finest Hours. Rescuing 32 sailors from a sinking ship caught in a ferocious winter storm is a dramatic tale, but what made this mission so special is that the boat Bernie skippered that terrible night was a mere 36 feet in length and the waves were almost twice that size! Bernie and crew received the Coast Guard’s coveted Gold Lifesaving Medal, and what they did on that stormy night is regarded as the greatest small boat rescue in history.

In Into A Raging Sea, Bernie tells that story, but the book is so much more than that. In these pages you’ll read about rescue attempts that did not turn out well, stories of fishermen from a time long past, rescues done with the by-gone technique of the “breeches buoy,” humorous anecdotes, and what Cape Cod and its people meant to Bernie.

Into a Raging Sea is a story of sacrifice, bravery, disappointment, and challenges. And in the background of Bernie’s journey is one constant, the sea. 
--from the forward by Michael J. Tougias

About the Author:

Bernie Webber, the late US Coast Guardsman, is credited for piloting the boat that is responsible for the "greatest small boat rescue" in the history of his service. He is the hero of the book and movie, The Finest Hours, and is played in the movie by actor Chris Pine.

Michael J. Tougias is a lecturer and best-selling author of 20 books. As a public speaker, Tougias regularly gives one hundred presentations or more per year. His books include The Finest Hours, currently being made into a movie by Disney. He lives in Plymouth, MA.

Review:

Into A Raging Sea, has been selected as the first book in the US Coast Guard's 2016 Commandant's Reading List, written by Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Paul Zukunft.

The Admiral gushes: "When I introduced my leadership philosophy a year ago, the first principle I shared was know your purpose. Into a Raging Sea is a personal memoir by a Coast Guardsmen who truly knew his purpose and then some. This Coast Guardsman is Bernard Webber, coxswain of motor lifeboat CG-36500, from Station Chatham, Massachusetts. His and his station's story will be featured on the big screen when The Finest Hours premieres later this month. Until then, you can hear directly from Webber himself in raw, candid text about his role in the Pendleton rescue and what life was like at Station Chatham in the 1950s."
