LOST VOYAGES: TWO CENTURIES of SHIPWRECKS in the APPROACHES to NEW YORK
"I enjoyed Lost Voyages immensely. Bradley Sheard has done a remarkable job, giving us one of the most fascinating and enjoyable shipwreck books in a long time. Informative, most certainly, but entertaining as well. Exactingly crafted by a master of research, Lost Voyages is an indispensable source for divers absorbed in underwater history."-Clive Cussler, best-selling author; founder of the National Underwater and Marine Agency (NUMA) dedicated to the discovery and preservation of historic shipwrecks.
''What a superb offering to anyone interested in ships and the sea. A treasure on many counts....a must for anyone who loves far horizons, the wind and the waves. And it is simply mind boggling to realize how many wrecks there are in the approaches to New York."-Frank O. Braynard, curator, American Merchant Marine Museum Foundation; maritime historian and artist; author of more than 40 books on steamships.
"History buffs and wreck divers of all ages will thoroughly enjoy Bradley Sheard's exciting account of shipwrecks in New York waters. The author has produced a readable and accurate description of hundreds of late 19th and 20th century sunken vessels as he brings them back to life in a way both divers and non-divers can easily relate to."-R. Duncan Mathewson III, Ph.D., archaeological director of the search for the Nuestra Señora de Atocha; marine archaeology professor.
"Bradley Sheard has done a lot more than explore the bones of a handful of shipwrecks. He has come up for air, done his homework, and told the stories of how thes unfortunate vessels and their crews found their way to Davy Jones Locker. Best of all, whether we get wet or cling to our armchairs, he has taken us along for the adventure."-Jerry Roberts, maritime historian; senior curator, Intrepid Sea-Air-Space Museum.
