9780981943060: Great Shipwrecks of the Maine Coast (Maritime)

"No one knows the maritime history of the Northeast any better than Jeremy D'Entremont, and with this small volume he begins a series of histories about the shipwrecks, lighthouses, and sea heroes of New England. The book begins with the hurricane of 1635, one of the worst recorded hurricanes in regional history, and the ship Angel Gabriel, which sank at anchor off of Pemaquid during the hurricane. Other accounts include a 1710 wreck at Boon Island which, in its day, was as sensational as ""Mutiny on the Bounty."" Four men were killed and the remaining two dozen had to resort to extraordinary measures to survive. Also here are the Penobscot Expedition, America's worst naval defeat until Pearl Harbor; a famous circus ship that foundered off Vinalhaven in 1836; and the mysterious explosion of a motorboat in 1941, which killed all 34 people on board. D'Entremont's authoritative history and skillful storytelling are illustrated by archival black-and-white photographs and etchings. "
