This is an auction for THE PERFECT STORM by Sebastian Junger.

"Toward the end of October 1991, a storm of colossal scale plagued much of the East Coast with devastating floods. At sea, the New England fishing boat Andrea Gail suddenly found herself in the very center of the tempest. THE PERFECT STORM chronicles the boat's ill-fated voyage in horrifying detail."
- Library Journal (US)

Amazon.com review:

"Meteorologists called the storm that hit North America's eastern seaboard in October 1991 a 'perfect storm' because of the rare combination of factors that created it. In THE PERFECT STORM Sebastian Junger conjures for the reader the meteorological conditions that created the 'storm of the century' and the impact the storm had on the people caught in it. Chief among these are the crew members of the swordfish boat the Andrea Gail, all of whom were lost 500 miles from home beneath roiling seas and high waves. Working from published material, radio dialogues, eyewitness accounts, and the experiences of people who have survived similar events, Junger attempts to re-create the last moments of the Andrea Gail as well as the perilous high-seas rescues of other victims of the storm. The Perfect Storm builds slowly and inexorably to its tragic climax. Junger does a remarkable job of explaining a convergence of meteorological and human events in terms that make them both comprehensible and unforgettable."
