Joe Garland's extraordinary account of the Gloucester fisherman Howard Blackburn and his mate Tom Welch, who were trawling for halibut on the Newfoundland banks in an open dory in 1883 when a sudden blizzard separated them from their mother ship. Howard Blackburn is legendary today, even among North Atlantic fishermen, and Garland's lyrical book reveals the astonishing man behind the legend.
