This audio tape recounts the true life loss of:
steamboat Lexington in 1840
NUMA's search for it in 1983
Confederate Submarine Hunley sunk in 1864 & the searchs in 1980 & 94
Troop Transport Leopoldville sunk in 1944 & the 1984 search
Lost Locomotive of Kiowa Creek lost in 1878 & resolution of 1989
Read from Clive Cussler's notes as his company NUMA searches for numerous shipwrecks all over the world.
I also highly recommend his books, The Sea Hungers & the sequel, The Sea Hunters II as well as his fictional adventure novels.
The Sea Hunters by Clive Cussler
ISBN: 0671574191 Abridged 2 Cassettes 3 Hours
Read by James Naughton and George Grizzard
In The Sea Hunters, Cussler tells of his lifelong love for the sea and ships and his dedication to the discovery and preservation of historic shipwrecks. With the same wonderful storytelling that Cussler brings to his novels, he describes his searches for shipwrecks that he and his NUMA volunteers have found. Opening each story with a creative dramatization of the ship and the way she met her end, he then brings the story into the present as he describes the immense research and careful preparation so often necessary to find a long lost ship.
