Redman, Rod E., Sea Classics


ADVENTURES OF A SEA HUNTER: In Search of Famous Shipwrecks By James P. Delgado with a Foreword by Clive Cussler 230 Pages, Illustrated 6''x 9'', Hardback. ISBN: 1-55365-071-9 - $25.00. Douglas & Mclntyre, Vancouver, BC; www.douglasmcintvre.com

If you've watched the Sea Hunters television series, you know the type of exciting shipwrecks James Delgado delights in exploring. And if you haven't seen this absorbing TV series, this book is sure to make you search it out for regular viewing. Nicely complimenting some of the TV show's spectacular dives, this highly-readable book is brimful of the type of detail and background television shows simply don't have the time and patience to cover. In this regard, this highly-readable effort combines all the talents of an author who has penned two dozen books into a single-volume, valuable reference guide to dozens of the world's most fascinating shipwrecks.

As host - with novelist Clive Cussler - for the National Geographic International television series The Sea Hunters - renewed for a third season - James Delgado goes in search of, among others, the RMS Carpathia, the ship that rescued Titanic's survivors; Mary Celeste, the infamous "ghost ship" found sailing alone without a soul aboard, in the mid-Atlantic in 1872; Vrouw Maria, a perfectly-preserved Dutch cargo ship of 1771, discovered on the bottom of the Baltic Sea packed with cargo, including crates of long-lost Old Masters belonging to Empress Catherine the Great of Russia; the lost ships of the Mongol fleet of Kublai Khan that invaded Japan in 1274; and USS Mississinewa, the first ship sunk by a Japanese "suicide submarine" in WWII.
