Leviathan's Master – The Wreck Of The World's Largest Ship

BOOK DESCRIPTION

It was the biggest sailing vessel ever built and the world's first super-tanker. In the winter of 1907, the four hundred foot, seven-masted schooner T.W. Lawson was making her first trans-Atlantic crossing with two and a quarter million gallons of kerosene for delivery to London. With almost fifty years of sailing experience, Captain George W. Dow was not intimidated, despite the Lawson's checkered history. But, three weeks of hurricane winds and an angry sea conspired to easily defeat man and machine.


Bereft of her sails, the giant ship found itself trapped in treacherous shoals off the southwest coast of Britain. Seventeen lives would be lost, including a local pilot attempting to avert disaster. Now, Captain Dow is called to account, most especially to himself. Leviathan's Master is a true story, transformed into a gripping historical novella by the Captain's great, great nephew.
