This is the life story of Dennis Hale, the only survivor from the wreck of the Great Lakes ore carrier Daniel J. Morrell in November 1966. This is an expanded version of his first book, "Sole Survivor: Dennis Hale's Own Story". Shipping on the Great Lakes is a very interesting subject, and the meteorological hazards involved have led to some notable disasters, like the Big Blow of 1913, the wreck of the Daniel J. Morrell, and the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. There is greater detail of his childhood issues that perhaps foreshadowed his shipwreck and his out of body and near death experience while on the raft.

This is the life story of Dennis Hale, the only survivor from the wreck of the Great Lakes ore carrier Daniel J. Morrell in November 1966. Shipping on the Great Lakes is a very interesting subject, and the meteorological hazards involved have led to some notable disasters, like the Big Blow of 1913, the wreck of the Daniel J. Morrell, and the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. All these disasters, amongst others, often occurred when a late fall storm fell upon the Great Lakes while shippers were trying to make their last runs of the season. The "gales of November" is a reference to the winds generated by a powerful mid-latitude low pressure center moving into the Great Lakes from the west or southwest, whipping up high seas.
This is a story of growing up the hard way, survival, and coping with personal tragedy. It also tells a little bit about the psychological, and possibly spiritual, impacts tragedy and loss can have upon the human mind. People are formed and changed by their experiences, both as a child and as an adult.
Overall I found this a delightful book. However, the Union Pacific's City of Los Angeles did not travel through Texas. It crossed the plains via Nebraska and Wyoming. My brother and I think the young Dennis Hale traveled to California from Ohio (through Chicago) via the Rock Island / Southern Pacific Golden State Limited, or took the Illinois Central's City of New Orleans to New Orleans, where he and his aunt would have picked up a Southern Pacific train to Los Angeles. Minor details and recollections aside, it is a good book about this man's interesting life. You can pick it up used through Amazon.com or new from the author.

This is an expanded version of his first book, "Sole Survivor: Dennis Hale's Own Story". There is greater detail of his childhood issues that perhaps foreshadowed his shipwreck and his out of body and near death experience while on the raft. I found it strangely captivating and inspiring, it was compelling to read, even though it is written by a "regular guy" and not a polished author.

I bought both of his books, but this one covers the material in the first book with much greater detail, so I only needed to buy this one.

This reads like a regular person (non-professional writer) put the book together. It does, however, give an honest and real perspective of what happened making this an interesting read. It makes you feel that you really know the person and can relate to all he went through. Definitely worth a look, especially if you're into maritime events.

Well written story of the Daniel J. Morrell, a Great Lakes freighter that sank in 1966 on Lake Huron. Dennis Hale, the author, was the only survivor out of a crew of twenty-nine. The chapters about his growing up years and troubled youth are a little boring, but I think he had to set the stage for the events as they unfolded, and how he happened to be on that ship that night. Overall, though, a very interesting tale of survival on the Great Lakes.

This book was totally absorbing. My husband and son especially enjoyed it--both read it in 2 days. What a ride

Dennis Hale's story moved me. What a life and story. I heard him speak last year and couldn't wait for the book. I wasn't disappointed.
I liked this book because it was written from the heart, warts and all. The only problem I have is that I ordered a new book as it was to be a Christmas present , costing 70 euros for purchase and postage. The book I received was second hand and written on. This is the first and last time I will ever purchase through AMAZON from the USA
