In January 1910, the steamship Farallon ran aground in Cook Inlet, Alaska. The crew and passengers reached the barren, ice-strewn shore and awaited their fate, fearful that rescuers would arrive too late. A compelling photographic record of the shipwrecked party was made by amateur shutterbug John E. Thwaites, the ship's mail clerk. Fortunately, most of the party was rescued one month after the shipwreck. Six others, who had set off in a small lifeboat in search of help, were rescued later. Lloyd brings to life a riveting tale of hardy seafaring men who survived hunger and despair under brutal circumstances.
