With all the recent attention on marine ecosystems, this well-researched book provides insight into the effects of maritime disasters and their wreckage. But, like the ocean itself, there is much more beneath the surface. Part archaeological expedition, part deep-sea quest, Shipwrecks attempts to cover so much territory it would be easy for readers to lose themselves in the many fascinating details. However, budding marine biologists and ocean adventurers will enjoy the wonderful photographs, information panels and primary source documents which bring these explorations alive. A glossary, index and extension activities are included. 64 pages Ages 8-12
