This is a true story retold in fictional form. In
January 1899 the Forest Hall, a three-masted fullrigged
ship floundered in the Bristol Channel in
the worst storms of a lifetime.The lifeboatmen
were unable to put to sea at Lynmouth.Their
only chance to save the crew of the Forest Hall
was to tow their boat overland to Porlock,
thirteen miles away...
Available again for the first time in decade,
C.Walter Hodges' classic book is a tale of human
endeavour and bravery, of courage and
determination in the face of ferocious weather,
set against the background of Exmoor's beautiful
coastline, so placid in summertime but so
terrifying in winter.
