Howard Blackburn was fishing from a dory when he was caught in a squall and set adrift on the Atlantic Ocean. The text captures the story of Blackburn's journey in 1883 from Gloucester Harbor to the Newfoundland coast. It shows his determination and spirit never waned, and how he continued to sail.
