For twenty-three years, Clive Cussler’s real life NUMA, the National Underwater and Marine Agency, has scoured rivers and seas in search of lost ships of historic significance. His teams have been inundated by tidal waves and beset by obstacles – both human and natural – but the results, and the stories behind them, have been dramatic; the raising of the Confederate submarine Hunley in the year 2000 alone made international headlines. In this publication Cussler & Dirgo provide another extraordinary, even more fascinating narrative of their true seagoing – and land – adventures. The famous ghost ship Mary Celeste found floating off the Azores in 1874 with no one on board; the Carpathia, the ship that rescued Titanic survivors and was itself lost to U-boats six years later; L’Oiseau Blanc, the airplane that almost beat The Spirit of St. Louis across the Atlantic before disappearing in the Maine woods – all these, plus steamboats, ironclads, a 17th century flagship, a certain famous PT boat, and even a dirigible, are tantalizing targets as Cussler proves again that truth can be “at least as fun as, and sometimes stranger than, fiction”.

First published in Britain in 1967 by Wm Collins & Sons Ltd. This edition published in 2012 by Little, Brown Book Group, Sarah Gainham author. Large, 632pp, uncorrected book proof copy, paperback in near new clean condition.
