Description: In October 1991 a Gale Blew Down from the Frozen Canadian north, mixed with a ferocious line of thunderheads surging in from the American heartland, and collided head-on with the warm tropical remnants of Hurricane Grace. The result was more explosion than storm. The roiling, churning mass gained such violent intensity -- ripping winds of at least 100 miles per hour and waves cresting at more than 110 feet -- that stunned meteorologists labeled it "the perfect storm". It veered east into the rich North Atlantic fishing waters known as the Grand Banks, and straight into the path of a helpless American swordfishing fleet.

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.

"Superb....Told with authority, brio and deep sympathy for those in peril on the sea". -- Washington Post Book World

"Thrilling....Even if you have never been to sea, Junger's account will put the frighteners on you". -- New York Times BookReview

"Mesmerizing.... Packs an emotional wallop". -- Boston Globe

"Ferociously dramatic and vividly written, The Perfect Storm is ... an incredible experience. A+". -- Entertainment Weekly
