Amazing book - shows how desparate some companies are for money, and people are for good pay despite atrocious safety concerns! But describes in detail how the Coast Guard saves people under the terrible conditions of the Bering Sea. Also the reader becomes aware of how dangerous it is for the people who procure our fish supply, even in the United States.

An excellent non-fiction read. In fact, reads as well as a thriller novel.

Kalee Thompson's narrative had me hooked to stay up into the wee hours of the night to read. I could close my eyes and picture what was happening.

A very unfortunate event that had very heroic moments and the Coast Guard efforts must be commended.
