Storms the country over, in the days of sail, here reported in a series of famous marine disasters, from East Coast to West, and throughout the lakes. Schooners, full riggers, barks, etc. wrecked by wind, snow, mountainous seas, these are the tragedies resulting from rough, wicked weather, and the heroism of men aboard and men ashore. Rescues and escapes counterbalance these records of loss of life, and vigilance and bravery of the surfmen parallel the violence of the gales, the fury and drama of the storms. Excitingly portrayed- a special angle for marine followers.
