Heroes of the Surf

Product Details

Adventure on the high seas!

WHAM! The Pliny jolts as if Black Beard himself has just punched her in the belly. Pedro and I slide and smack–bang–into the bulwark.

“We’re grounded,” cries the first mate. “We’ve hit a shoal!”

In May of 1882, a large steamship ran aground off the coast of New Jersey. Elisa Carbone imagines what it was like for two boys on that ship: waking up in the middle of the night, waves crashing over the side, the storm too big to lower the lifeboats. And then the flashing of light from shore–the surfmen, true “heroes of the surf,” come to rescue them. The award-winning author’s meticulous research combined with Nancy Carpenter’s spectacular illustrations make this thrilling adventure on the high seas one not to be missed!
