The Shipwreck Hunter

Product description

Winner of the Mountbatten Award for Best Book, 2018
David Mearns has discovered some of the world's most fascinating and elusive shipwrecks. From the mighty battle cruiser HMS Hood to the crumbling wooden skeletons of Vasco da Gama's 16th century fleet, David has searched for and found dozens of sunken vessels in every ocean of the world.
The Shipwreck Hunter is an account of David's most intriguing and fascinating finds. It details both the meticulous research and the mid-ocean stamina and courage required to find a wreck miles beneath the sea, as well as the moving human stories that lie behind each of these oceanic tragedies.
Combining the derring-do of Indiana Jones with the precision of a surgeon, in The Shipwreck Hunter David Mearns opens a porthole into the shadowy depths of the ocean.
This edition is in very good condition, tightly bound with clean white pages.  The hardback cover and spine are also  in very good condition as is the dust jacket.
