Synopsis: There are few images more chilling than an abandoned ship drifting at sea. Ghost Ships is an anthology of the best true-life accounts of vessels, which for whatever reason, never made
port. These are stories that prove the real mysteries of seafaring life are even stranger and more chilling than any fictional account.

Between the devil and the deep blue sea, many ships have met with a tragic end. The first section of the book, Doomed Vessels, includes the most famous, such as the Titanic, and the Lusitania--sunk by a torpedo in 1915. The next section, Haunted and Phantom Ships, explores the modern-day observances of supernatural events. Here are stories of ominous ghost ships, such as the Flying Dutchman, said to appear as an omen; and of mysterious figures that are glimpsed aboard haunted ships, such as the Queen Mary, where visitors have seen the figure of a lone woman. Nautical mysteries such as the Mary Celeste, a ship found empty and adrift in 1872, make up the final section of this book.

Ghost Ships explores the tragedy and what lies behind these amazing narratives
and enduring legends.

From the Back Cover: · Read spine-chilling accounts from reputable witnesses about tales of haunted ships, such as SS Queen Mary or phantom vessels like the legendary Flying Dutchman’s ship. · Mystery and superstition have always surrounded tales of the sea, from terrifying sea monsters to abandoned vessels, and the best of these stories are retold in a collection of intriguing tales. · Includes advice on how to explore what really happened to some of these vessels, as well as places to visit.
