True story of the sinking of the Alaska Ranger and rescue and recovery of the fisherman in the Bering Sea. The book is very detailed, giving many backgrounds on not only crewmen, captains, fish masters but also those who did the rescuing from the US Coast Guard to other fishing boats that the survivors were dropped off on.

If you enjoy the series, "Deadliest Catch", you will enjoy this book a lot. You will gain a better understanding of other fishing which occurs in the bearing sea. The Alaska Ranger was a factory ship which caught, killed and packed the fish all on one boat.

The book also talks about previous disasters and how the US Coast Guard learns from each one and tried to investigate and implement new safety standards in order to save more lives in the future. I believe that the new safety standards of having blinking lights on survival suits for these type of fishing boats is what saved so many lives. The lights should be mandatory on ALL Gumby survival suits for all fishing boats!

I learned so much from this book, it gave me an even greater appreciation than I already had from watching Deadliest Catch, for all the men and women who risk their lives everyday so we can enjoy seafood as well as those in the Coast Guard who work 24/7 to protect them.

Excellent read. Author did her research. Well written. As a first responder I felt she nailed the heroics of the Coast Guard, especially the pilots and rescue swimmers. Too bad the company that owned the alaska ships werent fined heavily. Just like Deep Water Horizon... that company escaped responsibility also. When will the employees stop paying the price for corporate maleficence and corruption?

This book portrays a real life story in a gripping manner. As Kalee introduces us to the fishermen, officers and Coast Guard rescue crews we feel as if we know them. We feel the tension as the situation goes from bad to worse, we anxiously wait to see who will survive, we cheer for those that do and we mourn those that don't. I highly recommend this book to anyone who thinks that there are no real heroes left today. The bravery and determination of the Coast Guard will prove them wrong.

This is a really good book. It opened my eyes on the dangers of commercial fishing in the bearing sea, boat owners, regulations, and safety of everyone on the boats. To think that the ole mightily dollar takes precedence over peoples lives is beyond me. I think that people who want to go fishing on these boats need to have their eyes open more, take some real safety classes, really practice getting in the survival suits in stressful situations, and getting in a life boat in some rough water. I don't know how long that takes, weeks worth of training, but I believe it is needed before getting on a boat heading out to the sea, any sea or rough water. The Coast Guard is awesome in my opinion, risking their lives to save yours. They have families too. I think the owners of these boats should be held accountable for the employees on their boats, that they make it mandatory for the employees go thru extensive training for survival if some thing should happen. And have proof that their boat is safe, the employees have been thoroughly trained, and pass inspection. Or they can't go out!

I suspect the title, "Deadliest Sea," is intended to piggyback interest in the popular "Deadliest Catch" cable television program. Both the book and television series take place in the same part of the world and the book makes occasional references to the television series. The book recounts the real-life rescue of the crew from the Alaska Ranger, a 190 foot factory trawler that went down in a storm in 2008. The book begins with the Mayday call from the Alaska Ranger, then backs up and explores the lives and lifestyles of both the fishermen and the Coast Guard rescuers, leading up to the Alaska Rangers crews' awareness that their ship was sinking. Then, it becomes a race for the Coast Guard and nearby "Good Samaritan" ships to rescue the crew from giant waves and freezing temperatures. None of the rescue vessels is close enough for a quick rescue and ships and aircraft battle the elements to get to the scene in time. The book is illustrated with black and white photographs of the ships and aircraft involved in both the sinking and the rescue. Also, photos of crew members and rescuers. I would have liked to have seen more illustrations, but I was able to satisfy my curiosity with trips to the Internet for more pictures and information. While Hollywood usually takes liberties with real-live events, I would like to see this book made into a movie...if they could keep to the facts enough that it doesn't become some other story...
