Books Info:

Williwaw: A Novel free pdf A gripping tale of men struggling against nature and themselves, "Williwaw" was Gore Vidal's first novel, written at 19 when he was first mate of a US Army freight supply ship stationed in the Aleutian Islands. Here he writes of a ship caught plying the lethal, frigid Arctic waters during storm season. Tensions run high among the edgy crew and uneasy passengers even before the cruel wind that gives the book its title suddenly sweeps down from the mountains. Vividly drawn characters and a compelling murder plot combine to make "Williwaw" a classic war novel.
