Editorial Reviews

Review

An NCSS Notable Social Studies Trade Book
A Junior Library Guild Selection

A Cybil's Children and Young Adult Literary Award Finalist
A Texas Topaz List Selection


“Tougias' third-person narrative, condensed and more tightly focused than the adult version, brings to life the struggles and heroism of the sailors and rescuers alike, highlighting life lessons learned. . . A sure-fire hit with young readers who are always ready for a good disaster tale.” ―Kirkus Reviews

"The dramatic narrative is engaging and won’t disappoint students who enjoy adventure or rescue stories" ―School Library Journal

"This true story . . . reads like a thriller, with one thing after another going wrong and each challenge
seemingly impossible to overcome. The courage displayed by the team may inspire readers to learn more about their exciting (if life-threatening) careers."-Booklist

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

I've written and co-written 30 books for adults and have been fortunate enough to land on the NY Times Bestseller list and had a Disney movie made on The Finest Hours. I've also written several books for children age 8-13, some of which are part of my "True Rescue Series" with MacMillan Publishing. You can learn more about me and see videos related to my books and my presentations at www.michaeltougias.com.

My latest book is The Waters Between Us: A Boy, A Father, Outdoor Misadventures, and the Healing Power of Nature. A coming of age story, a father/son relationship, my Dad's courage in the face of years of adversity, and finally a celebration of nature at my remote cabin in Vermont. While the book has it's serious side it also has laugh out loud humor like A Walk In The Woods.

I write on a variety of topics which could roughly be grouped as follows:

TRUE SURVIVAL & RESCUE STORIES: my books include "Overboard!", "Ten Hours Until Dawn", "The Finest Hours" (now a Disney movie), "A Storm Too Soon", "Rescue of the Bounty", "Fatal Forecast", and "So Close to Home"

HISTORY: "King Philip's War" (co-author), "Quabbin", "The Blizzard of 78", "Above & Beyond: JFK and America's Most Dangerous Spy Mission"

HUMOR AND THE OUTDOORS: "There's a Porcupine in My Outhouse: The Vermont Misadventures of a Mountainman Wannabe"

MEMOIR & OUDOOR ADVENTURE: "The Waters Between Us: A Boy, A Father, Outdoor Misadventures, and the Healing Power of Nature.

YOUNG ADULT/MIDDLE READER: "Attacked at Sea", "The Finest Hours", "Into the Blizzard", "A Storm Too Soon", "Claws", "In Harms Way"

I'm not sure what I'll do next. But I'll follow my intuition. And, of course, the topic has to be something I feel passionate about. I give presentations about my books across the country and also give inspirational talks for businesses on decision-making and reaching difficult goals.
