Description: throughout history the ship has predominated as man's most versatile form of transport and the sea with its dangers has always gripped his imagination and aroused in him wonder, curiosity, fear, awe and exaltation. In this book the author looks at the sea in its many moods and at the varied disasters and adventures that result. It contains stories about shipwrecks, treasure hunts, fire at sea, mutiny and the everpresent risks of sinking and capsizing. These range in time and place from the sinking of Henry VIIIs "Mary Rose" to modern disasters like the capsizing of the "Herald of Free Enterprise" in February 1987, with the loss of almost 200 lives, and the sinking of the pleasure cruiser "Marchioness" in August 1989, with 51 drowned. The author has also written "Without Trace" and "The Sea Shall Not Have Them".
