Synopsis: Fascinating, lesser-known facts about the Titanic and details on the ship, the passengers, and the sinking. The book also explores aspects of the wreck today and salvage operations.
Although the main events of the Titanic disaster are well known, significant facts and tidbits remain obscure. Who were the thousands of men who built the giant ship? How were the bodies of the victims collected and buried? What were the conclusions of the investigative hearings into her sinking? Answers to these and hundreds of other questions are presented in this useful, easy-to-read volume.
Lee W. Merideth is the author of several Civil War reference books and a longtime Titanic buff. He lives in northern California.

Store Description: A single man, with some pets and friends and family who enjoys books. I have been a reader since I was young. On a day like today, I would sit under the sprinkler and read and stay cool. After getting a degree that didn't fit the economy, I suffered though 20 years at the post office. The last five brought many customers in who I talked to more than others, they were the book people. And I liked them. I asked questions, and gave myself a ultimatum of 6 months. If I didn't enjoy my postal job, I was going to quit, and I did. The kids were out of the house. The wife had moved away and I enjoyed my animals.For the last 8 years or so I have sold books. I'm always trying to learn. There is so much. But I enjoy the people, and the books, and my animals.
