From the Publisher:

"In recounting the disastrous sinking and miraculous recovery of the S.S. Brother Jonathan, Dennis M. Powers shows his prodigious research abilities. Every time you think this story couldn't possibly take another strange turn, Powers proves that it can, and he does so in highly entertaining fashion."

"A remarkable piece of nautical literature. Well researched in every detail, Treasure Ship captures the intrigue of one of the most storied ship disasters on the American West Coast."
--Jim Gibbs, author of Pacific Graveyard

"Powers captures the era beautifully. Treasure Ship is a thoroughly engaging read. . . . a fine companion work to Ship of Gold in the Deep Blue Sea."
--Kevin F. McMurray, author of Deep Descent, Dark Descent
