Used book. Hardcover. Dust jacket included. Good Condition.
From the dust jacket --
A desolate group of Islands in the Indian Ocean,
A proud 17th century vessel aground on the reef,
Human suffering and misery pushed to the utmost limits,
Legendary maritime prowess,
The discovery of one of the most sought after wrecks in the world,
Bringing to light and preserving its “treasures”,
The incredible challenge of piecing together the sunken ship…
One of the most dramatic stories of all time!
