9781596298668: Shipwrecks of the Delaware Coast: Tales of Pirates, Squalls & Treasure (Disaster)

Under the hot summer sun, vacationers stroll the Rehoboth Beach boardwalk, chewing saltwater taffy and listening to the gulls raucous cackle. Few realize that under the sparkling water rests a graveyard. Horrific nor'easters, treacherous shoals and simple human error caused the demise of countless ships, giving birth to legends of treasure and terror. There is the De Braak, rumored to hold millions of dollars in gold; the Mohawk, which burned like a torch in the Delaware Bay; and the vessels that fell victim to the Great White Hurricane, which froze dead men to the mast. Journey with local author Pam George as she deftly picks her way through the history of Delaware's most intriguing and mysterious shipwrecks.

About the Author:

Pam George regularly writes about maritime history for Delaware Beach Life, Delaware Today and Coastal Sussex Weekly. She also writes on food, health, technology, travel and business for such publications as Fortune, Christian Science Monitor, Antiques Roadshow Insider, US Airways magazine and My Midwest. Raised in Devon, Pennsylvania, she now lives in Wilmington, Delaware, with her husband, Steve. As a result, she knows the difference between going to the beach (Delaware) and going “down the shore” (Jersey). This is her first book.
