Description - The Finest Hours by Michael J. Tougias

A harrowing Coast Guard rescue of two oil tankers that split in half and left sailors hanging on for their lives. On the night of February 18, 1952, during one of the worst nor'easters that New England has ever seen, two oil tankers just off the shore of Cape Cod were torn in half by the force of the storm. This middle-grade adaptation of an adult nonfiction book tells the story of a harrowing Coast Guard rescue when four young men in a tiny lifeboat overcame insurmountable odds and saved more than 30 stranded sailors. It's a fast-paced, uplifting story that puts young readers in the middle of the action. A gripping account of heroism and survival.
