    Storms that can whip up in a moment, acres of sand banks and a large tidal range have made the north-west coast a treacherous stretch of water down the centuries. This book investigates the stories of shipwrecks and attending rescue attempts from the 17th century, when smugglers and wreckers were as much a hazard to shipping as the weather, to the sinking of the Irish ferry Riverdance in 2008.
