A HURRICANE HITS… AND ONLY OLIVER CAN SAVE SURPRISE.
On the first night of a long-awaited sailing adventure, fever sends young Oliver back into the teeth of Hurricane Carol, a storm that devastated the New England coastline in 1954. The character we came to love in Oliver’s Surprise finds himself aboard Cap'n Eli's schooner Surprise as the storm makes landfall.
Once again, young readers see New England coastal history through the eyes of our intrepid time traveler, who just might have to use the skills he learned from the Hurricane of 1938 to get back to his own time.
Along with charts, photos, glossary, diagrams, and illustrations, Cronin has embedded a sailing primer into a ripping good yarn.
