Synopsis

Doomed Ships Shipwrecks, Ghost Ships and Abandoned Vessels by Penny Clarke

Doomed Ships is a fascinating catalogue of maritime disasters, from the earliest times to the present day - right up to the Cutty Sark fire of 2007. The Titanic, the Mary Rose, the Mary Celeste and the legendary Flying Dutchman are all here. Find out how shipwrecks happen, how scientists explore underwater remains, and what we can learn from these amazing time capsules from the past. Stunningly illustrated throughout, with clear text, maps and cutaway drawings revealing what's going on inside. Witty cartoons, in addition to realistic drawings, make the book an entertaining and informative introduction to areas of history that can often be daunting for young readers. A complete glossary and index makes this title an ideal educational text for both home and school.
