New York, NY (PRWEB) June 13, 2013
Aimed at the Dad's Day market, three new Audible.Com titles on shipwrecks, Coast Guard rescues and man-eating lions, have been released by Race Point Productions, Inc.
The titles are, "Until the Sea Shall Free Them" -- an account of the wreck of the SS Marine Electric; "Two Tankers Down" -- a narrative of the great Coast Guard rescue off Chatham, Cape Cod; and "The Man-Eaters of Eden" -- an investigative narrative that shows how apartheid turned lions into predators of humans in Kruger National Park, South Africa.
The audio books are available on Amazon.com at http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=robert+frump&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Arobert+frump as are conventional Kindle and paper versions of the titles.
Audible.com offers the audio books for as little as $7.95 at http://www.audible.com/search/ref=mn_anon-h_tseft?advsearchKeywords=frump&filterby=field-keywords&x=20&y=11
All three books and audio books are aimed at the non-fiction adventure market on Father's Day and have experienced peak sales at this time period. Both "Until the Sea Shall Free Them" and "Two Tankers Down" are considered classic sea narratives and are on the U.S. Coast Guard reading list. The first book tells the story of how the SS Marine Electric sank off the coast of Virginia in 1983. In the aftermath of 31 men dying, US merchant marine safety inspections were overhauled and more than 70 old ships were scrapped. Additionally, the famous US Coast Guard rescue swimmers program was started as a result of casualties from men so cold they could not by themselves get into life rafts.
"Two Tankers Down" tells the story of Bernard C. Webber and his brave, impossible mission to save the crew and officers of the SS Pendleton in a horrible storm in February 1952. But the book also details the wreck of the Fort Mercer and the incredible rescue of its officers after the ship split in two.
Man-Eaters of Eden shows how apartheid immigration policies forced Mozambican refugees and workers to begin crossing famed Kruger National Park at night -- where lions quickly learned to devour them. The conditions continue to this day as Zimbabweans cross the park under similar conditions.
All three titles were written initially by Robert R. Frump, a nationally recognized journalist who worked for The Philadelphia Inquirer and was managing editor of The Journal of Commerce.
