Nailer is a shipbreaker in the gulf coast area, a member of a crew who crawls on rusted out ships in the Atlantic Ocean and strips them free of anything valuable. It's dangerous work, and Nailer's drug taking abusive father does not make life on land any easier. But when a major hurricane wrecks a sailboat on the shore, Nailer's fates are about to change.
A great steam punk adventure!
