Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0887765017, Hardcover)

Anne Harvey has lived all her young life on the island off the rugged coast of Newfoundland and has seen what the raging storms can do to helpless ships caught in their path. It’s no surprise that Isle aux Morts means Island of the Dead.

One day in July 1832, Anne awakes to a terrible storm. When she hears a distress signal, she discovers a ship in danger of breaking up. As she and her father and brother race to the ship in their own small boat, Anne has an idea. She sends her Newfoundland dog, Hairy Man, into the waves toward the ship and the only real hope of rescue. Based on the true story of the wreck of the Despatch. A book with special appeal to those who know and love gentle Newfoundland dogs.
