“NOBODY DOES IT BETTER
THAN CLIVE CUSSLER.
The Sea Hunters II is...
—The Associated Press
“As with the first
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
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
, which they raised in 2000.
In this second volume of true stories, Cussler and colleague Craig Dirgo target the famous ghost ship
the ship that rescued the
survivors only to be lost to U-boats six years later;
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” (
“Cussler’s artful writing style and varied experiences while searching for historical treasures make this a first-rate adventure book.”

The Sea Hunters

—Norman N. Brown,
“Cussler tells one hell of a story.”
—New York Daily News
“Cussler does a great job of making history lively and
interesting ... He entertains and enlightens at the same
time, [and] his infectious enthusiasm will have more
than one reader wondering if there’s any way he can
hook up with him on his next adventure.”
—The Denver Post
“[An] absorbing, fast-paced collection.”
