My First Impressions

I had to read the first 50 pages of this book for my Writing About Literature class at the Coast Guard Academy. I went into the book having no idea what a wrecker was, or what the book was about at all. The book is a conglomeration of stories (as far as I can tell) about various wreckers in America...

schema:description"In the late 19th century, an intrepid, reckless group of men earned their living by rescuing and raising sunken ships, even in the face of monstrous waves and fierce weather. To some, they were heroes, helping to rescue both passengers and ships with courage and skill. To others they were ruthless pirates, who exploited these ship wrecks for their treasure. The book provides a compelling portrait of the wrecker captains and the dangerous lives they and their men led, from their early beginnings when greedy villagers would lure ships to the rocky coasts of Europe to their heyday during the era of the fast but vulnerable American clipper ships and their founding of the city of Key West. The author traces the journey of these legendary men through the story of Captain Thomas P.H. Whitelaw, the most important ship salvager of his day."@en
