The Lyons Press is also proud to publisher The Serpent's Coil, another book of sea adventure by Farley Mowat.From the Back Cover:
The Serpent's Coil recounts the amazing story of the Liberty ship Leicester, which sailed for New York from England in the summer of 1948, ran into a hurricane (with the loss of six lives), and was abandoned in mid-Atlantic. It also tells of the deep-sea tug Foundation Josephine, which tracked the derelict Leicester over a vast distance, found her listing severely, and towed her another thousand miles to Bermuda, where both ships ran into yet another hurricane.Farley Mowat, whom The New York Times has called "a master storyteller," expertly weaves together the different threads of his tale as he traces the hurricane from its origins to its fateful meeting with the Leicester, describes what it's like to endure a hurricane, and shows the difficult nature of the Josephine's salvage mission. A predecessor of The Perfect Storm, The Serpent's Coil is a classic of the sea. (6 X 9, 192 pages, map, illustrations)
