The Poseidon Adventure is the story of a luxury ocean liner on its maiden voyage when it is capsized by a massive undersea earthquake. The accident is fatal for many of the passengers and now a handful of survivors are in the fight for their lives. With the ship turned upside down, they struggle to make it from the upper deck of the ship to the hull which is the only part of the ship still above water. The group must do all that they can to survive before the time runs out.

Gallico is also the author of The Snow Goose. The story tells of the friendship between an artist named Phillip, living with disabilities who is living a solitary life in an abandoned lighthouse, and a young girl named Fritha. There is a snow goose, symbolic to both of them, who is wounded by a gunshot and the two help to nurse it back to health. As the friendship grows, the bird’s health regenerates as well. Once healthy, the snow goose makes its returns to the lighthouse during migration for several years.
