Summary
"Deep in the dark North Atlantic night, the majestic ocean liner Titanic strikes ice and quickly begins to sink. It radios out an 'S-O-S' distress call into the night. But all the ships who receive the call are too far away to help. All apart from the humble Carpathia. But surely it is too small to help, and how will it navigate the perilous ice fields? Follow the brave crews of both ships and find out what happened on this fateful night. It's all hands to deck as the little ship races on its brave journey to save 706 passengers from the world's most famous maritime disaster."--Back cover
