Pigs Car (Go-Along Books) by Burton Marks, Michael Chesworth

It was an avalanche of water bearing down on them, rushing toward them. The pillar of water grew higher and higher. . . As if daring the sea to their final battle, the captain swung the Ethie around to face her enemy head on. All aboard saw the wave surging forward. Not a single person thought they would survive. IN 1919, JUST before Christmas, the S.S. Ethie departs Port Saunders, Newfoundland, for St. Johns Harbor with 92 passengers and crew, all eager to be reunited with family for the holidays. After several difficult days at sea, a violent winter storm casts the coastal steamer Ethie onto rocks one-half mile off the jagged cliffs of northwest Newfoundland. Guided by his fisherman master, and following his own instincts, Skipper, a hardworking and courageous Newfoundland dog, braves the icy, dangerous waters to carry a lifeline from the sinking ship to shore. A seat is rigged to this cable, which carries each person onboard to safety. All 92 passengers and crew were saved from probable death in the icy Atlantic waters by the actions of this brave dog. In this minute-by-minute fictionalized account of the S.S. Ethies dramatic voyage, the author vividly brings the adventure to life, showing the spirit of survival amongst the passengers and crew, as well as the strength and determination of a poor fishing family and their courageous dog to save those 92 souls.
