sinopsis

The tale of Carl Wake and the hurricane that was waiting for him goes straight to the heart of the greatest sea stories: they are not about man against the sea, but man against himself. John Kretschmer s book is as perfectly shaped and flawlessly written as such a story can be. In addition to being the best depiction I have ever read of what it is like to be inside a hurricane at sea, At the Mercy of the Sea is as moving a story of a man s failure and redemption as can be found anywhere in the literature of the sea. This book is surely destined to become a classic. Peter Nichols, author of Sea Change and A Voyage for Madmen

John Kretschmer has transformed this story of three men on a collision course with a hurricane into a modern seafaring classic. Peter Nielsen, editor of SAIL magazine

With expert analysis and taut writing, he draws readers into that mad storm. You can t turn away. You keep reading until it breaks your heart. Fred Grimm, columnist for the Miami Herald

Once begun, his vivid and powerful narrative is impossible to put down. Derek Lundy, author of Godforsaken Sea and The Way of a Ship

I felt I knew Carl Wake, because John Kretschmer found in him an archetype an aging sailor with an age-old dream. Jim Carrier, transatlantic sailor and author of The Ship and the Storm: Hurricane Mitch and the Loss of the Fantome

A remarkable book, impossible to put down. Herb McCormick, sailing journalist
