On the night of January 31 1998, the fishing vessel La Conte took on water and sank off the coast of Sitka, Alaska, in what was to be the worst storm in the state's history. Abandoning ship, the five-man crew desperately clung to life - and each other - in ferocious 90 foot seas, and freezing water. All would surely have perished were it not for the efforts of the Coast Guard Search and Rescue teams who flew their choppers into the heart of the storm with little hope of rescuing anyone.

Review:

Walker paints the history, geography, and citizenry of Alaskan fishing towns with great warmth and evocativeness...Don't be surprised if tears of relief flood your eyes after finishing. "Kirkus Reviews (starred review)"

Harrowing and suspenseful "Publisher's Weekly"

"COMING BACK ALIVE" is everything the genre demands: exciting harrowing maddeningly suspenseful. "Portland Oregonian"

Junger intrigues you, Greenlaw enlightens you. Walker will scare you half to death...Walker describes seven of the most intense hours I have read about. "National Fisherman's Journal"

Reminiscent of Sebastian Junger's "THE PERFECT STORM" and Frederic Stonehouse's "THE WRECK OF THE EDMUND FITZGERALD." Highly recommended. "Library Journal""
