With almost fifty years of sailing experience, Captain George W. Dow is not intimidated, despite the Lawson's checkered history. But hurricane winds and an angry sea conspire to defeat man and machine. Bereft of her sails, the giant ship is trapped in treacherous shoals off the southwest coast of Britain. Seventeen lives are lost, including a local pilot trying to avert disaster. Now, Captain Dow is called to account-most especially to himself.
"Leviathan's Master" is a true story, transformed into a gripping historical novella by the captain's great, great nephew.
