Synopsis:

Academy Award–winning actor Gene Hackman spins a cinematic tale of pirates, shipwrecks, and sea adventure. Co-written with Daniel Lenihan, one of America's leading authorities on shipwrecks and diving, Wake of the Perdido Star is a moving story of a young boy's coming of age on the high seas, full of authentic nautical and historical detail. A 19th-century sea adventure in the spirit of Patrick O'Brian, Wake of the Perdido Star is a captivating tale about friendship, justice, and survival.

From the Author: I'm forever fascinated by the emerald atolls and lagoons of Micronesia. The allure of the islands and the people is what drew me in. But the submerged history of shipwrecks and fabled battles is what keeps me hooked. I tried to capture this sunken vitality in my novel Wake of the Perdido Star, written with my friend Daniel Lenihan, an underwater archeologist. The characters we created dived into these waters to retrieve guns and salvage instruments on a wrecked ship--actions based loosely on a historical event in Palau in 1783, when a British East India Company craft sank. With help from the natives, the survivors built a new ship and sailed back to England. (Gene Hackman, in National Geographic Traveler, November 1999)
