Torn in Two The Sinking of the Daniel J Morrell
Torn in Two The Sinking of the Daniel J Morrell and One Man's Survival on the Open Sea
A gripping tale of one of the worst shipwrecks in Great Lakes history and of remarkable survival against all odds
Michael Schumacher recreates the circumstances surrounding the terrible storm of November 1966 that broke the mighty freighter in half, sending twenty-five of the Morrell’s crew to their deaths and consigning the surviving four to the freezing raft where all but one would perish. Schumacher’s vivid narrative captures every harrowing detail of the Morrell’s demise, finally doing justice to this epic shipwreck.
