Description

A crew of intrepid sailors battle for their lives in this epic true story of heroism and bravery at sea.

In the midst of the Blizzard of 1978, the tanker Global Hope floundered on the shoals in Salem Sound off the Massachusetts coast. When the Coast Guard heard the Mayday calls, they immediately dispatched a patrol boat. But within an hour, the Coast Guard boat was in as much trouble as the tanker—both paralyzed in unrelenting seas. Enter Captain Frank Quirk who was compelled to act. Gathering his crew of four, Quirk plunged his forty-nine-foot steel boat, the Can Do, into the blizzard.

This middle grade adaptation of the adult nonfiction book Ten Hours Until Dawn chronicles the harrowing journey between Captain Quirk and the Coast Guard as they struggled in the holds of a radical storm.
