Read full description of the books:
The Serpent's Coil recounts the amazing story of the Liberty ship Leicester, which sailed for New York from England in the summer of 1948, ran into a hurricane (with the loss of six lives), and was abandoned in mid-Atlantic. It also tells of the deep-sea tug Foundation Josephine, which tracked the derelict Leicester over a vast distance, found her listing severely, and towed her another thousand miles to Bermuda, where both ships ran into yet another hurricane. Farley Mowat, whom The New York Times has called "a master storyteller," expertly weaves together the different threads of his tale as he traces the hurricane from its origins to its fateful meeting with the Leicester, describes what it's like to endure a hurricane, and shows the difficult nature of the Josephine's salvage mission.

Read information about the authorFarley McGill Mowat was a conservationist and one of Canada's most widely-read authors.
Many of his most popular works have been memoirs of his childhood, his war service, and his work as a naturalist. His works have been translated into 52 languages and he has sold more than 14 million books.
Mowat studied biology at the University of Toronto. During a field trip to the Arctic, Mowat became outraged at the plight of the Ihalmiut, a Caribou Inuit band, which he attributed to misunderstanding by whites. His outrage led him to publish his first novel, People of the Deer (1952). This book made Mowat into a literary celebrity and was largely responsible for the shift in the Canadian government's Inuit policy: the government began shipping meat and dry goods to a people they previously denied existed.
The Sea Shepherd Conservation Society ship RV Farley Mowat was named in honour of him, and he frequently visited it to assist its mission.
