9780470873878: Farewell, Titanic: Her Final Legacy

On the 100th anniversary of the Titanic's sinking, a prominent Titanic researcher offers a final chance to see the ship before it disappears forever

The Titanic was the biggest, most luxurious passenger ship the world had ever seen; the ads proclaimed it to be unsinkable. When it sank in April 1912 after hitting an iceberg, killing more than 1,500 people, the world was forever changed and the public has been spellbound ever since. Now, a century later, the Titanic is about to disappear again: its infrastructure is set to collapse in the next few years. In this book, scientist Charles Pellegrino offers what may be the last opportunity to see the ship before it is lost to the seas for eternity. The last book to be written while survivors were still alive and able to contribute details, Farewell, Titanic includes many untold stories about the sinking and exploration of the unsinkable ship.

  • Author Charles Pellegrino provided source material for James Cameron's Oscar-winning Titanic film, which is being re-released in 3D at the same time as the book
  • Includes 16 pages of never-before-published full-color photographs of the sunken vessel
  • Includes all-new information about the Titanic research that has been carried out in the last decade
  • Written by a New York Times bestselling author who participated in the post-discovery analysis of the Titanic's remains during the expedition that immediately followed Robert Ballard's Titanic discovery in 1985

From the Inside Flap:

The Titanic was the biggest, most luxurious passenger ship the world had ever seen. The ads proclaimed it to be unsinkable. When it sank in April 1912 after hitting an iceberg, killing more than 1,500 people, the world was forever changed, and we have been spellbound ever since. Now, a century later, the Titanic is about to disappear forever: its infrastructure will finally collapse in the next few years. In this book, scientist and New York Times Bestselling writer Charles Pellegrino offers what may be our last opportunity to see the ship before it is lost to the sea for eternity.

In Farewell, Titanic, world-renowned Titanic expert Pellegrino re-creates the great ship’s final hours in stunning detail, clears up several key mysteries about what actually happened, and reveals new information about how and why the ship went under so quickly. This is probably the last book that could have been written while Titanic survivors were still alive, and in Farewell, Titanic, Pellegrino draws on survivors’ firsthand stories of the tragedy as well as evidence he and others have collected during their deep-sea explorations of the ship’s remains in the last twenty-five years. Together, these sources create a riveting account of the intensely dramatic moments before and after the collision and of the aftermath.

Farewell, Titanic also goes far beyond the nightmarish catastrophe to draw connections between the loss of more than 1,500 souls and some of the tragedies of our won era. Drawing on the author’s personal story, the book examines with rare sensitivity and immediacy the cautionary scientific and poignant spiritual lessons of disaster. Filled with dozens of extraordinary original color photos of the great ship, Farewell, Titanic offers compelling reading for anyone who is fascinated by forensic maritime science or who is simply moved by the timeless drama of history’s most legendary shipwreck.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Charles Pellegrino

Farewell, Titanic

"Pellegrino has completed his twenty-five-year journey of Titanic exploration with this deeply detailed book that looks the horror and chaos of that disaster square in the eye, with human insights not previously brought to light. Pellegrino really is the king of connect-the-dots."
James Cameron, Academy Award-winning director of Titanic

"Charles Pellegrino's aptly named book is packed with untold stories. There is much to admire here, and Pellegrino is just the man to document what may indeed be the Titanic's final chapter."
Bill Schutt, American Museum of Natural History, author of Dark Banquet

Ghosts of the Titanic

"Charles Pellegrino has raised the Titanic—at least in my imagination."
Stephen King

"Very moving. Like Her Name, Titanic, Ghosts of the Titanic often brought tears to my eyes."
Sir Arthur C. Clarke, author of 2001: A Space Odyssey

Her Name, Titanic

"Like walking through a Stanley Kubrick film . . . it is impossible to pull off this sort of thing without knowing the facts, and Charlie Pellegrino knows his Titanic inside and out."
Walter Lord, author of A Night to Remember
