The Perfect Storm by Sebastian Junger

The Perfect Storm

In October of 1991, Captain Billy Tyne and his crew aboard the ship Andrea Gail, went down off the coast of Nova Scotia, victims of a massive storm that created  100 foot waves and a swirl of sea that overcame even the most seasoned of seaman.

The Perfect Storm is a gripping work of non-fiction, telling the story of the fisherman, the boats, the storms and the rescuers involved in the catastrophe of 1991.

Obviously no one knows what really happened to the Andrea Gail, the minute by minute drama that evolved in the midst of nature’s fury, but Junger does an excellent job of piecing together what was known, together with narratives from fisherman who have survived other storms in the past.  It was a fascinating and informative read.
