Sinking of the Titanic, Most Appalling Ocean Horror:With Graphic Descriptions of Hundreds Swept to Eternity Beneath the Waves, Panic Stricken Multitude Facing Sure Death, and Thrilling Stories of This Most Overwhelming Catastrophe (Classic Reprint) Jay Henry Mowbray
From best-selling author Simon Winchester comes the immense and thrilling story of the world´s most mysterious and breathtaking natural wonder: the Atlantic Ocean. Atlantic is a biography of a tremendous space that has been central to the ambitions of explorers, scientists, and warriors, and continues to affect profoundly our character, attitudes, and dreams. Spanning the ocean´s story, from its geological origins to the age of exploration, from World War II battles to today´s struggles with pollution and over-fishing, Winchester´s narrative is epic, intimate, and awe inspiring. Until a thousand years ago, few humans ventured into the Atlantic or imagined traversing its vast infinity. But once the first daring mariners successfully navigated to its far shores - whether they were Vikings, the Irish, the Basques, John Cabot, or Christopher Columbus in the north, or the Portuguese and the Spanish in the south - the Atlantic swiftly evolved in the world´s growing consciousness of itself as an enclosed body of water. Soon it became the fulcrum of Western civilization. More than a mere history, Atlantic is an unforgettable journey of unprecedented scope by one of the most gifted writers in the English language. 1.

Wreck and Sinking of the Titanic:The Ocean´s Greatest Disaster, a Graphic and Thrilling Amount of the Sinking of the Greatest Floating Palace Ever Built, Carrying Down to Watery Graves More Than 1, 500 Souls, Giving Exciting Ecapes From Death and Acts of Marshall Everett
It was one of the most traumatic events in maritime history, and Archibald Gracie was probably among the last to leave the sinking Titanic on that cold April night in 1912. In this unique account, he describes his personal experiences and remarkable escape from death in the icy waters of the Atlantic, painting a vivid picture of what it was like on board the Titanic in its final hours. Tracking down other survivors for their stories and attending court hearings to obtain the official record, Colonel Gracie filled in the details of his account, struggling to complete it in spite of illness. Largely due to the effects of his ordeal and exposure in the frigid Atlantic, he finally succumbed on December 4, 1912. His book was published in 1913 to universal acclaim and remains one of the most vivid first-hand accounts of the disaster. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Frederick Davidson.

K.T. Tomb takes an infamous page from history and recreates it as a sweeping adventure thriller and undersea treasure hunt in Ghosts of the Titanic. First, she takes listeners back to 1912 and the maiden voyage. Forbidden Russian lovers - Stephan Ivanovich, a peasant farmer, and Darya Nikita, an aristocrat with a dowry of diamonds - board the Titanic so they can elope and enjoy a life together in America. The plot fast-forwards to a present-day quest and introduces illegal salvage entrepreneurs posing as documentary filmmakers. Captain Jonathan Martin and his hand-picked crew go to the deep-sea waters of Newfoundland, Canada, to try to recover the diamonds for Darya´s descendants, who hired them. Nick and Franco, the divers, conflict with Lisa, the ship´s medic, who´s in charge of training them to use their new technology. They all have their doubts about the presence of James Harper, a wanted criminal, on this ship. In the past, Darya is trying to escape her aristocratic family and an arranged marriage. In the present, using experimental equipment, when divers Nick and Franco see ghosts on the wreck, an unexpected murder mystery unfurls startling secrets of the voyage before the Titanic hit the iceberg. An ancient curse puts an additional paranormal spin on the dark secrets held by the ghosts of the Titanic. And, once awakened, the ghosts aren´t content to stay at the bottom of the ocean. A small team of adventurers risks their very lives - and possible arrest - for a sack of diamonds. Will they succeed in their treasure hunt, or die trying? 1. Language: English.

´´Iceberg, right ahead!´´ Only 160 minutes passed between the time a sailor on lookout duty uttered these chilling words and the moment when the mighty ocean liner Titanic totally disappeared into the cold, dark waters of the North Atlantic. This century-old tragedy, which took more than 1,500 lives, still captivates people in the 21st century. Seventy-three years separate the two major Titanic events - the 1912 sinking of the vessel and the dramatic 1985 discovery of the wreck by Robert Ballard. But additional stories about the victims, survivors, rescuers, reporters, investigators, and many others show the far-reaching effects this tragedy had on society. Award-winning author Stephanie Sammartino McPherson has collected numerous personal accounts of the event, including the knighted man who spent the rest of his life in seclusion because he was accused of dishonorable behavior in a lifeboat, the stewardess who survived two shipwrecks and a midocean collision, and the New York Times executive who sent multiple reporters to meet the rescue ship, thus earning a national reputation for his newspaper. She also links the Titanic tragedy to changes in regulations worldwide. After a Senate inquiry and a British trial attempted to assign blame for the disaster, new laws on ship safety were put in place. A group of nations also banded together to form an ice patrol, eventually leading to the formation of the US Coast Guard. Even the most avid Titanic fans will learn something new as McPherson brings the listener up to date on the politics and intrigue still surrounding the wreck - including what modern science can reveal about what really happened to the ship and who was at fault. Prepare to follow the never-ending story of the Titanic into its second century. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Intuitive.
