Description


Topics include "the Graveyard of the Atlantic," in a nod to the rough waters that over the centuries have claimed hundreds of vessels, and "Torpedo Junction," site of "the Great American Turkey Shoot," the latter nickname bestowed by German submariners during World War II.

The volume includes first-person accounts of Civil War battles, a freedmen's colony, hunt clubs that drew the first wealthy tourists, and lifesavers who used horses to pull surfboats to the water and fired lines by cannon to wrecked vessels. Readers will even hear contemporary stories of the Boy Scout troop that rode ponies descended from ancient shipwrecked animals.
