On November 29th, 1966, the Great Lakes or freighter Daniel J. Morrell was northbound in Lake Huron, fighting gale-force winds and tremendous waves.  Suddenly, with no warning, the Morrell began to break in half.  Within minutes, the Morrell's crewmen were cast to the mercy of the stormy and frigid lake.  No distress signal had been sent, and it would be more than a day before the Morrell was reported over due.  Of her crew of 29, only one man, Dennis Hale, survived.  Here, for the first time, Dennis tells the whole story of his survival in the face of incredible odds, as well as the events leading up to and following his ordeal.  This book is must, not only for those interested in Great Lakes maritime history, but for its story of the triumph of the human spirit over adversity.
