Rough Water is an adventure audiobook at its most compelling. Hear the stories of men and women battling the elements, and sometimes each other, to stay alive, confronting savage storms, rogue waves, icebergs, sharks, starvation and their own fear and suffering.
From Sebastian Junger's The Whale Hunter to Herman Wouk's The Caine Mutiny to Lawrence Beesley's The Loss of The S.S. Titanic, Rough Water is a unique collection of the finest writing on why men and women go to sea, and what they find there.
