What began as a drunken wager and voyage of frolic has become a desperate struggle of survival as the crew of the clipper ship Crucible find themselves caught up in the greatest cataclysmic event in human history. Every page is an adventure which leaves the crew a hairsbreadth from death and destruction.
Follow their voyage from sunny Spain to the icy waters of the South Atlantic and the abandoned whaling stations of South Georgia Island, though the fjords of Terra del Fuego and on to the Falkland Islands, around Cape Horn to French Polynesia and the tiny forgotten island haven of Rapa Iti.
