Martin W. Sandler Þ The Impossible Rescue doc

Martin W. Sandler Þ The Impossible Rescue doc Whaling in the Arctic waters off Alaska’s coast was as dangerous as it was lucrative in 1897 In that particular year winter came early bringing with it storms and ice packs that caught eight American whale ships and about three hundred sailors off guard The ships were imprisoned in ice with no hope of escape With limited provisions on board the ships that hadn’t been crushed by the ic Ever since being drawn in by the opening scenes of Frankenstein with the icebound ship this kind of bleak setting and desperate narrative has been something I enjoy in books I was dragged on enough winter camps as a scout in the 80s to know that I would absolutely hate it Butterfield Canyon in the Ouirrhs 1982 was the worst we couldn't even nail down the corners of the tents because the snow was so deep and everyone just stayed up all night with their feet up to the fire In the morning the soles were melted off most everyone's boots and we still had another night tho go But in the abstract being stranded in the arctic is interesting I had to do a little research to see what this genre is called Narrative History is the genre tag that seemed most right The story is assembled as a story while trying to stay faithful to the historical facts This is the traditional version of narrative history staying chronological The graphic design choices are beautiful making this like a coffee table book than a picture book or a plain paperback narrative history Each page is well designed and the photos and drawings are spread throughout the book instead of being chuffed into a center section of plates like we see in this type of history in paperback history for adults Surprisingly no graphic design credit Candlewick had some great folks working on this to make it a gorgeous experience and a great book for the aesthetics of book handling C'mon Candlewick credit them even if they're on staff Sources are phenomenal stretching to 28 pages a 'what happened to each character' section comes first; a timeline; chapter by chapter uote sources; bibliography; photo credits; and index There is actually a handful of primary sources in the bib including William McKinley's address to congress and references to the New Bedford Whaling Museum's artifacts and records which I used in my whaling projects on bowheads over the past 10 years Photo credits also lead back to New Bedford and they have a phenomenal web site So a small number of very nice leads out to inuiry and research What differentiates this book from what you could learn on the internet? The completeness of the story All of it in one place and in careful detail and humanized The best theme starts out at the very beginning where the crews and captains of the stranded ships had no concept of disciplining themselves for survival as a group for a whole arctic winter
