For readers of the fine book Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea, this is the perfect companion because it gives the reader some great visual treats to go with this incredible story of disaster and discovery. Wonderful period paintings and photographs of the people, the ship, and its sinking are combined with modern photographs of the wreck as it sits on the bottom, as well as the many artifacts that have been removed from that deep blue sea. This richly illustrated book is simply a stunning addition to the story of the tragic loss of the S.S. Central America.
