The Perfect Storm: A True Story of Men Against the Sea
It was the storm of the century, boasting waves over one hundred feet high—a tempest created by so rare a combination of factors that meteorologists deemed it "the perfect storm." In a book that has become a classic, Sebastian Junger explores the history of the fishing industry, the science of storms, and the candid accounts of the people whose lives the storm touched. The Perfect Storm is a real-life thriller that makes us feel like we've been caught, helpless, in the grip of a force of nature beyond our understanding or control.
Gr. 2-4. Even very young readers have heard tales of hidden treasure, and Donnelly relates accounts of real hunts for fabulous wealth to be gleaned from pirate stashes, sunken ships, religious offerings, and even train wrecks. Large print, ample but not overwhelming color illustrations, and a narrative style that communicates the excitement of the search together make this a book readers will find difficult to put down. An excellent choice for those looking for adventure stories as well as those who prefer nonfiction.
