Local fishermen of the North East saved countless lives attending ships floundering in the hostile waters of the North Sea, first in their own small boats and, from the early 19th century, in organized lifeboat services. Illustrated with archive photographs and engravings, this history tells the tales of over 30 celebrated wrecks and rescues that took place off the coast between the Tyne and the Tees in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
