#of carl wake #Carl Wake very best friend from age 8 through igh school Ironically Carl and I both chose the path of sailing the sea I ve sailed through storms with waves to 25 feet but never sailed in a L'Europe et le mythe de l'Occident hurricane and Carl didn t intend to He got caught mostly through inexperience The sea is no respecter of soles It will take everyone that it can Sail on my friend and I ll look for you beyond the sunsetMy only regret about buying this book is that I wish the events described in itad never Calvinists Incorporated Welsh Immigrants on Ohio's Industrial Frontier University of Chicago Geography Research Papers happened I finished reading this last night and am sorry that I m done It is a great read In my opinion it is John Kretschmer s best book so far The story is very well written and kept me turning pages I ended up staying awake longer than I d intended for multiple nightsjust to read a bit farther I didn t want to put it down Congratulations to the author and the editors on a fantastic book I m a sailor and recently completed an intense 6 day maritime meteorology course The stories in this well written book reinforced my view that one should take all precautions to stay away from the possible path of tropical cyclones I don t like reading books clearly when the author is trying to make money with a story by filling up pages of description after description of anything else but the story itself We don tave to know in boring details about everyone s life I was interested only in about 10 pages the actual storm itself and even then the author can only speculate I don t recommend this book It seems that the good true stories are from the early 1900 s Anything in recent years is really all about writing books to make money not really about people enjoying the story. “The tale of Carl Wake and the The Kitchen Linens Book Using Sharing and Cherishing the Fabrics of Our Daily Lives hurricane that was waiting forim goes straight to the eart of the greatest sea stories they are not about man against the sea but man against imself John Kretschmer’s book is as perfectly shaped and flawlessly written as such a story can be In addition to being the best depiction I Thank You God For Everything have ever read of what it is like to be inside aurricane at sea At the Mercy of the Sea is as moving a story of a man’s failure and redemption as can be found. I bought this book as research for my own book about Leonard Destin the man behind the Florida town of Destin Who Ran Into A who ran into a off the Florida coast in 1835 Never aving lived through such a storm especially at sea I needed an expert s view What I got was an intense and emotional journey with three brave sailors Although I knew from the first pages that Carl Wake ad died in the storm John Kretschmer s vivid writing kept me Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America's Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing hoping that somehow there would be aappy ending and the final report on Carl s whereabouts broke my Mordecai Cubitt Cooke Victorian Naturalist Mycologist Teacher and Eccentric heart I ve read the book three times now andighlighted many passages both for the facts of sailing and for the mind of a sailor Kretschmer delivers both in a captivating tale A fitting tribute to The Gold's Gym Training Encyclopedia his friend Carl and to Steve Rigby and Guillaume Llobregat all of whom I will never forget Enjoyed this book is a well written account what led up to these sailors getting caught in such a raging storm A good story about friends love for the sea and the disaster I d recommend this book to anyone who likes reading sea stories This book is special The story and characters are so compelling and so beautifully caught in such a terrible mess of a storm that it almost seems like Kretschmerad to make it up but it s true You will recognize in Carl the amateur cruiser a kindred spirit if you ve ever dreamed of sailing or messed about in boats but The Origin of Feces he rises underorrific circumstances to a noble albeit ill fated act of courage that will bring a tear to your eyeKretschmer s style is top notch right up there with some of the finest literary authors I ve ever read and I m saying that as a literature professor who as read a LOT of books The narrative takes a sophisticated reader
