Synopsis: This highly illustrated volume traces the evolution of shipping through the drama of shipwrecks.
About the Author: A native of Long Island, New York, Bradley Sheard was introduced to ships and the sea at an early age by his grandfather. Following his ambition to explore shipwrecks he took up scuba diving and made his first wreck dive off Long Island in 1977. Thus began an all-consuming passion for exploring and photographing shipwrecks that has led him to sunken ships form all eras of American history, many of which are chronicled in this book.
Advances in recreational scuba diving have led to exciting discoveries in the ocean's depths, and Sheard's thirst for new explorations has driven him to these untouched frontiers. He was among the first to dive the newly discovered graves of the tankers Norness and Sebastian, the World War I passenger liner SS Carolina , and what is believed to be the submarine USS Spikefish fleet, which included descents to seven of the ten ships sent to the bottom during Mitchell's exercises, and an exploration of the Bikini Atoll fleet sunk in an atomic bomb test are among the author's more recent explorations. His articles and photographs have been published in a variety of books and magazines, and his first book, Beyond Sportdiving, explored the East Coast Shipwrecks lying beyond the accepted depth limits of sport scuba diving.
Sheard holds a Master of Science degree in engineering mechanics. He began his professional career at Grumman Aerospace Corporation, where he spent 14 years performing engineering analysis of carrier-based jet aircraft for the U.S. Navy. He recently moved to Seattle, Washington to work for the Boeing Company on the next generation military jet aircraft, the Joint Strike Fighter.
