Summary

Summary

Shipwrecks! The very word evokes dramatic stories, images of tragedy and courage alike -- the Titanic going down as its orchestra played, the surprise torpedoing of the passenger ship Lusitania during World War I. Cathie Cush, an experienced diver, brings these stories alive with fascinating tales of once-great mistresses of the sea that now rest upon the ocean floor, and the people and the cargo they carried. Chock-full of lavish illustrations and practical information on seeing these wrecks under the sea, Shipwrecks goes beneath the waves to bring readers the underwater world.
