Summary
In 1897, whaling in the Arctic waters off Alaska's coast was as dangerous as it was lucrative. And that particular year winter blasted in early, bringing storms and ice packs that caught eight American whale ships and three hundred sailors off guard. Here is the incredible story of three men sent by President McKinley to rescue them. With the help of photographs and journal entries by one of the rescuers, Martin W. Sandler takes listeners on every step of their riveting journey
