Recommends it for: anyone intersted in Montauk
Interesting book about the fishing vessel, The Pelican, that went down Labor Day weekend 1951 off the coast of Montauk, Long Island. I picked up the book last year on Labor Day weekend out in Montauk where the author was having a book signing, and was quietly surprised to find it compelling and interesting.

A must read for Montauk lovers! Could not put this book down! True story about the Pelican disaster of 1951. The Pelican was a party boat that capsized off Montauk Lighthouse. Lots of Montauk history contained in this book.
