Daring the Sea
By David W. Shaw


The remarkable saga of two men who defied the odds and set a world record unsurpassed for over a century.....

Based on the original logs, Daring the Sea is a nonfiction account of the first voyage under oars alone across the Atlantic Ocean. Convinced that they had no bright future as clam diggers supplying the Fulton Fish Market in New York City, Norwegian immigrants George Harbo and Frank Samuelsen conceived a plan to set a world record by becoming the first men to row 3,000 miles across the Atlantic.

Daring the Sea is published by Kensington Publishing Corp. and is available for $6.99.
