Carpenter's strong, period illustrations enhance Carbone's tale of pirates & danger on the high seas. Based on the wreck of the Pliny off the Atlantic Coast in 1882, the story regales the work of the US Life Saving Service. Which, combined with the Revenue Cutter Service, became the US Coast Guard in 1915. Carbone's text, full of descriptive language would serve well as a mentor text.
