A steamboat goes up in flames... and down to the bottom of the sea. A locomotive plunges into a creek... and vanishes into mystery. A German U-boat sends an American troop transport, and eight hundred on board, to a watery grave... on Christmas Eve. Cussler and his crack team of NUMA (National Underwater Marine Agency, a nonprofit organization that searches for historic shipwrecks) volunteers have found the remains of these and numerous other tragic wrecks. Here are the dramatic, true accounts of twelve of the most remarkable underwater discoveries made by Cussler and his team. As suspenseful and satisfying as Cussler's renowned Dirk Pitt novels, The Sea Hunters is a unique story of true commitment and courage.
