Although the crew of 20 men and women makes it to shore safely, the party will battle with the Quileute tribe and will endure captivity by the Indians for the next two and a half years.

Great chronology of the Gray's Harbor area during its hey day. My grandmother grew up in the area in 1888 - 1907 . I wanted to know what life was like during that time frame and I found out. Edwin Van Syckle and David James Van Sycle brought the era to life in a lively manner. It is fun reding.
