"This book definitively establishes the Columbia River Bar as the world's "most dangerous" based on science: The unique geologic history of the Columbia River's relatively young mouth is what produces its unparalleled propensity to generate waves that can topple the world's largest ships. In all the world, there is no place where it is more critical to have a pilot."-rear cover.
