Tougias, Mike, 1955- True rescue (Series)
Note "Christy Ottaviano books."
"An adaptation for young readers of ... Ten hours until dawn: the true story of heroism and tragedy aboard the Can Do."
Summary "In the midst of the Blizzard of 1978, the tanker Global Hope floundered on the shoals in Salem Sound off the Massachusetts coast. When the Coast Guard heard the Mayday calls, they immediately dispatched a patrol rescue boat. But within an hour, the Coast Guard rescue boat was in as much trouble as the tanker--both paralyzed in unrelenting seas. Enter Captain Frank Quirk who was compelled to act. Gathering his crew of four, Quirk plunged his forty-nine-foot steel boat, the Can Do, into the blizzard"--Publisher marketing.
