Sinkings, Salvages and Shipwrecks, a collection of true tales, cannot fail to fascinate those who love the sea and stand in awe of its power.
What was it like to have been aboard a doomed treasure ship destroyed by hurricane on the Florida coast...and then, 255 years later, to be the first to find the treasure?!? Or to walk the sunken streets of Port Royal and hear the bell toll in the tower? It all lives again as Robert Burgess puts you into these exciting true sea tales. Fully illustrated.
