On The Edge of Survival by Spike Walker

If you didn’t know, Spike Walker’s books inspired the hit T.V. show ‘Deadliest Catch’. This book, ‘On The Edge of Survival’ was great! In 2004 a Malaysian cargo ship, on it’s way from Seattle to China, ran aground off the coast of Alaska in the Aleutian Islands; setting the stage for one of the most incredible Coast Guard rescue missions of all times. With monster waves, gale force winds and a blinding snow storm the odds were stacked against the 738′ -long freighter and it’s crew. This book kept me always on the edge, wanting to find out how they would manage this rescue and who would survive.
