It also tells of the deep-sea tug Foundation Josephine, which tracked the derelict Leicester over a vast distance, found her listing severely, and towed her another thousand miles to Bermuda, where both ships ran into yet another hurricane.

Farley Mowat, whom The New York Times has called a master storyteller, expertly weaves together the different threads of his tale as he traces the hurricane from its origins to its fateful meeting with the Leicester, describes what its like to endure a hurricane, and shows the difficult nature of the Josephines salvage mission.
