Books Info:

The Gathering Wind free pdf "October 2012." A replica of the famous HMS "Bounty," an eighteenth-century tall sailing ship, set a collision course with a storm that became the largest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic--a clash that proved to be one of the most unforgettable stories of Superstorm Sandy. The "Bounty," crewed by an eclectic team of seafarers and led by highly respected captain Robin Walbridge, departed from Connecticut as Sandy raced north. Walbridge, whose decisions decided the fate of his ship and crew, attempted to outmaneuver the storm by heading southeast. As violent gusts tossed the wooden vessel, the crew fought to save their ship--and themselves. When the storm finally overtook the ship, the crew was tossed into the churning sea. The men and women of a Coast Guard station in North Carolina courageously flew into hundred-mile-per-hour winds to rescue the survivors of the "Bounty." After hours of white-knuckle flying, they accomplished one of their most memorable rescues ever. Based on interviews with "Bounty "survivors and unfettered access to Coast Guard rescue team members, "The Gathering Wind" is the most complete account of this heartbreaking, thrilling, and inspirational story.
