Book Description:

Covering a period of about 200 years—from 1750 to 1942—this slim volume highlights the most famous shipwrecks and sea disasters that occurred off the coast of North Carolina. In the mid eighteenth century, a fleet of Spanish galleons and frigates loaded with gold coins and a variety of goods wrecked off Cape Hatteras during a hurricane. During 1942, German U-boats sank more ships off the Outer Banks than the Japanese sank at Pearl Harbor in 1941. Filled with color and black-and-white historical illustrations and contemporary photographs, this is a treasure trove of facts and details about the most famous ship disasters off North Carolina’s coast.

About the Author:

Bruce's photographs have appeared in Sports Illustrated, Time, Life, and Time Life Books.
