According to the numerous reviews from the readers, the present title is a truly impressive one. The text is perfectly written, very readable and representing the huge efforts of the author in the field of research. The breathtaking story of two passenger vessel groundings that occurred in the coastal waters of Alaska, namely “Princess Sophia” and “Star Princess”, has been told and described in detail.

As the author said, they had not resulted from any single misjudgment or other error but were rather cause by the long and complex chain of happenings, mistakes, coincidences and other events that would otherwise be considered quite insignificant – that is why none of the crew members understood that they were in such a serious danger. And, when they did realize the fact, it was obviously far too late to return; in fact, this is the case with most of the unfortunate events at sea.

In both cases, the crew understood where they were and knew that it was not possible to handle the weather anymore. This is a great story of the two remarkable vessels and the skilled crew who were unlucky to misjudge the deepest and most dangerous fjord in North America. Have a look in this book, it does deserve your attention.
