Lost On The Ocean Floor: Diving The World's Ghost Ships
No current Talk conversations about this book.
"John Christopher Fine has explored and documented the sunken fleets of the world - from Scapa Flow to Truk Lagoon - for most of his adult life, and the best of his discoveries are showcased in this book. With the aid of his own photographs, Fine describes the sunken ships, dating from early Roman colonization to modern times, and the stories behind them, relating the circumstances of their loss and, in some cases, salvage and preservation." "This is a book that captures the drama of discovery while presenting the historical, scientific, and archaeological facts. Where possible, eyewitness reports of sinkings are included, as well as the folklore associated with some of the world's great salvage attempts. Readers are also treated to personal accounts of those who have found great treasure on long-lost shipwrecks."--Jacket.
