I really liked it. By Thriftbooks. com User, August 21, 2006. I was waiting with my group for a table at the Eatery in Trinidad, California and browsing the books in the gift shop. I first thought this one by a local author was a poetry collection, but after I read the first paragraph and a half from the Introduction I knew differently. I also knew I was hooked.

Friedrich Wilhelm Christian Karl Ferdinand von Humboldt (/ˈhʌmboʊlt/, also US: /ˈhʊmboʊlt/, UK: /ˈhʌmbɒlt/, German: ; 22 June 1767 – 8 April 1835) was a Prussian philosopher, linguist, government functionary, diplomat, and founder of the Humboldt University of Berlin, which was named after him in 1949 (and also after his younger brother, Alexander von Humboldt, a naturalist).

Friedrich Wilhelm Heinrich Alexander von Humboldt (14 September 1769 – 6 May 1859) was a Prussian polymath, geographer, naturalist, explorer, and influential proponent of Romantic philosophy and science. He was the younger brother of the Prussian minister, philosopher, and linguist Wilhelm von Humboldt (1767–1835). Humboldt's quantitative work on botanical geography laid the foundation for the field of biogeography

This is a gripping read, all the more so because it is based on historical facts: five tales of crossing the bar of Humboldt Bay at night, when the really big waves can hit.

This is a gripping read, all the more so because it is based on historical facts: five tales of crossing the bar of Humboldt Bay at night, when the really big waves can hit. Each story has an intensely individual voice as Gates weaves both the events and the characters’ personal histories and impressions together. While reading, I had to keep remembering that these were all real events and people, precisely drawn.

One of my very favorite books - from the very first page - I was hooked. Gates is a very talented story teller- his imagery and vast knowledge of the complcated and ferocious Humbodlt Bay are stellar. Could not put this book down - and am very anxious to share the book with friends and relatives.

My son is a deep sea fisherman out of Eureka, so this was doubly interesting

I was waiting with my group for a table at the Eatery in Trinidad, California and browsing the books in the gift shop. I first thought this one by a local author was a poetry collection, but after I read the first paragraph and a half from the Introduction I knew differently. I also knew I was hooked. I had to hurry to the table that came ready but I bought the book on the way out and read it on the plane trip home. The author tells his stories very well. His style brings the people and the sea forth in a completely real and vivid and credible way. I felt I stepped back into the weathery wet world of the west coast that I had left behind years ago. But I had only experienced storms from shore and this book brought me in touch with the ever present dangers of the sea so vividly that I feel those stories are part of my own history. Now I am on the outlook for more books to continue the adventure. Thank you, Jon Gates.

We live in Humboldt County and cross the bar regularly. This was an interesting read of local history. And I won't be going across the bar at night!
