Outstanding nonfiction writing that makes history come alive.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

A terrific true tale, well told.
—Booklist (starred review)

Using extensive primary sources in the form of journals, reports, letters, and photographs, Sandler has pieced together a stirring and evocative retelling of this historical adventure. The writing draws readers into both the suspense of reaching the struggling whalers in time as well as the dire, life-threatening conditions that the rescuers themselves faced.
—School Library Journal (starred review)

Crisply designed with plentiful white space, this book shares a thrilling and inspirational story of determination, perseverance, and bravery.
