“As with the first
Sea Hunters,
Cussler brings history alive
with the same deft storytelling touch he has used in a popular, long-running series of adventure novels featuring Superman-of-the-seas Dirk Pitt.”
—Fort Worth Star-Telegram

 

 

REAL ADVENTURES.
REAL GLORY.

 

 

For nearly twenty-five years, the real-life NUMA, Clive Cussler’s National Underwater & Marine Agency, has scoured rivers and seas in search of lost ships of historic significance—such as the Confederate submarine
Hunley
, which they raised in 2000.

 

In this second volume of true stories, Cussler and colleague Craig Dirgo target the famous ghost ship
Mary Celeste;
the
Carpathia,
the ship that rescued the
Titanic
survivors only to be 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—plus steamboats, ironclads, a seventeenth-century flagship, a certain famous PT boat, and even a dirigible—to prove once again that truth can be “at least as fun as, and sometimes stranger than, fiction” (
Men’s Journal
).

 

 

“Cussler’s artful writing style and varied experiences while searching for historical treasures make this a first-rate adventure book.”
—Publishers Weekly

 

“FASCINATINGLY TOLD.”
