To the editor:
I did not see any mention of the book called “Ten Hours Until Dawn” by Michael J. Tougias in the story “Remembering the crew that went down to the sea” (Feb. 7). This is the true story of heroism and tragedy aboard the Can Do.
Readers should find this book and read it. I bought this book from the author at a lecture at the Hamilton-Wenham Library a few years ago. It will open your eyes and hearts to the lives of those who dedicate their lives to helping others and especially fellow mariners. Few people knew what was going on on the waters off the coast; much was always mentioned of the destruction on land during the Blizzard of ’78.
