This volume recounts stories of seafaring disasters and explores the consequences of these disasters for survivors, rescuers, families, communities and, in some cases, nations. The stories include: a mid-Atlantic accident that destroyed a prominent family; the Pacific typhoon that postponed America's first war with Germany; New England's equivalent of the Titanic; the worst non-combat disaster in Navy history; the stormy deaths of a poet and of a great American woman writer; and three disturbing tales of derelict ships adrift at sea (including the involvement of the creator of Sherlock Holmes).
