Oliver's Surprise

A Boy, a Schooner, and the Great Hurricane of 1938

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Historical young adult fiction on the Storm of ?38 by Olympic sailing superstar. Longing to feel closer to his favorite grandfather, Oliver skips school on a sparkling September afternoon and hides out on a tired schooner. When he wakes up on the ways of his grandfather?s boatyard and realizes he?s been transported back to 1938, he must decide what to do before the dangerous hurricane he?d been studying in school hits. While the main character is a 12-year old boy, Oliver?s story, and the story of a powerful weather event, is more than appropriate for an adult audience. The addition of glossary, history of Hurricane of 1938 and NEW history of coastal schooners in this revision make the reading and educational interest high. Oliver?s Surprise nicely captures the look and feel of coastal New England in the early part of this century.
