After a career at sea that caused his health to deteriorate, William Clark Russell retired and turned his attention to writing. Though he published several novels before The Wreck of the Grosvenor, this action-packed account of growing tensions among a ship's crew that eventually erupt into full-blown mutiny was his first major success.
Sailor Paul Rodney thinks he's cheated death when he barely escapes with his life from a disastrous storm that lays waste to his ship and its entire crew. The sole survivor of the crash, Rodney drifts helplessly on a huge iceberg. When he first spots another vessel in the distance, he's sure that his worries are over. But in truth, the true terror has just begun.
William Clark Russell joined the Merchant Navy at the age of 13 and served an eight-year stint, permanently damaging his health in the process. He then traded in life at sea for life as a writer, penning dozens of nautical romances and action-adventure novels over the course of his literary career. In A Tale of Two Tunnels, Captain Jackman of the Lovelace leads his crew on a series of adventures on and off the water.
