BOLD SEA STORIES
21 Awe-Inspiring Adventures
The courage of the Sole Survivor is the remarkable survival tale of a seaman who fought to stay alive on an ice-coated open life raft from the sinking of his ore boat, the S.S. Daniel J. Morrell. The Bold Sea Chapter is fashioned out of the award-winning magazine article by the author published in The Ensign magazine.
