STORMS AND WILD WATER
by Dag Pike
Storms are terrifying, awe-inspiring and provide an unparalled thrill to those who encounter them — and survive. Despite centuries of technological advances in boat and ship design, sailors still talk about the storms have experienced in hushed, reverential tones. On land a storm’s severity is measured only by the strength of the wind. At sea the situation is doubly worse, as storm-force winds have a devasting effect on waves, creating deadly conditions for boats and ships caught out in terrible weather.
Exploring the worst that nature can inflict on the sea, Dag Pike details the experiences of both big ships and small craft in every ocean of the world, relating stories of dramatic rescues and narrow escapes, as well as tragic losses. The spectacular photography truly brings home the danger of storms and wild water. This fascinating book is a sobering insight into the power that nature can unleash. SC, 2009, 159 pgs. SW 1.2 lbs.
