A Speck in the Sea: A Story of Survival and Rescue [9781602863385]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

New in Paperback: The harrowing adventure-at-sea memoir ( Terrific. -Daniel James Brown) recounting the 2013 search-and-rescue mission for lost Montauk fisherman John Aldridge.

A Speck in the Sea is a terrific read-harrowing and inspiring at the same time. In the end it's a moving testament both to our individual will to survive and to our collective will to come to the aid of others in distress. I couldn't put it down. -Daniel James Brown, author of The Boys in the Boat

In the dead of night on July 24, 2013, John Aldridge was thrown off the back of the Anna Mary while his fishing partner, Anthony Sosinski, slept below. As desperate hours ticked by, Sosinski, the families, the local fishing community, and the U.S. Coast Guard in three states mobilized in an unprecedented search effort that culminated in a rare and exhilarating success.

A tale of survival, perseverance, and community, A Speck in the Sea tells of one man's struggle to survive as friends and strangers work to bring him home. Aldridge's wrenching first-person account intertwines with the narrative of the massive, constantly evolving rescue operation designed to save him.


AUTHOR: John Aldridge and Anthony Sosinski co-own and operate the Anna Mary, a lobster boat, in the open ocean surrounding Montauk. Best friends for decades, Aldridge and Sosinski are seasoned sailors and fishermen.
