-- From the dust jacket
“This sixth revised and updated edition of Charles Ingram’s monumental work will more than fulfill the expectations of those who have been eagerly awaiting the new edition of this New Zealand Classic.
New Zealand Shipwrecks now records more than 2100 shipping casualties over a period of 187 years. The years 1976-82 are now covered for the first time and an appendix includes details on earlier shipwrecks which have only recently come to light.
Though essentially a work of reference, New Zealand Shipwrecks is an eminently readable volume. It contains many epic accounts of disasters in which courage, endurance and self-sacrifice were particularly evident. Wrecks of unusual consequence and drama are reported at length, but the book also gives essential details of every known shipping loss, including commercial fishing vessels, in New Zealand waters.”
