In this real-life blockbuster, journalist Sebastian Junger follows the doomed course of Captain Billy Tyne, whose longliner boat Andrea Gail disappeared into that storm with a crew of six. In breathtaking prose and exquisite detail, he examines the culture of risk, the love of the sea, and the desperation born of a dying tradition that ties these fishermen to their boats. He visits the faded fishing villages that dot the New England coast, and through heart-rending histories and chilling survivors' testimonies, shows why they call deepwater fishing a "young man's game, a single man's game". In hardcover, The Perfect Storm garnered rapid, widespread acclaim and national bestseller status. In paperback, this tragic, unforgettable story of human heroism in the face of nature gone mad will reach an even broader audience.
