Description:

SIGNED hardcover first edition - First printing. "In September 1857, the SS Central America, a side-wheeler carrying 600 passengers returning from the California Gold Rush, foundered in a hurricane and sank 200 miles off the Carolina coast. Over 400 lives and 21 tons of California gold were lost. In the 1980s, a young engineer from Ohio [Tommy Thompson] set out to do what no one had been able to do: establish a working presence on the deep-ocean floor. October 1989 they sailed into Norfolk with the recovered treasure: gold coins, bars, nuggets, and dust, plus steamer trunks filled with period clothes, newspapers, books and journals and even an intact cigar." This is the fascinating story of both the disaster at sea, based on eyewitness accounts, and of the most incredible efforts to recover the 'greatest treasure ever found.' Frontispiece, SIGNED on the title page by Kinder. 507 pp. Fine in fine dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: In 1857, the "SS Central America," a side-wheel steamer carrying nearly six hundred passengers returning from the California Gold Rush, foundered in a hurricane and sank off the Carolina coast. Over four hundred lives and twenty-one tons of gold were lost.In the 1980s, a young engineer from Ohio set out to do what no one, not even the U.S. Navy, had been able to do: establish a working presence on the deep-ocean floor and open it to scientific discovery. After years of intensive effort, Tommy Thompson and the Columbus-America Discovery Group found the "Central-America" in eight thousand feet of water, and in October of 1989 they sailed into Norfolk with her recovered treasure.Here is the story of both the victims and heroes of the disaster, and the visionary team that opened Earth's last frontier.
