Barnes and Noble Indiebound
Using objects recovered from the Titanic’s shipwreck, this book tells the tale of the doomed ship’s discovery, the disaster that sank her, and the human stories behind the tragedy.
Focusing on Robert Ballard's historic discovery of Titanic and the expeditions that followed, this fascinating book takes children on an unforgettable journey through the remains of the sunken ship. Stunning photography of the wreck, archival images, and modern reconstructions bring the story back to life, from the opulent liner’s construction to the night she fatally foundered. Eye-catching elements including infographics provide accessible statistics and an analysis of the sinking, while personal artifacts recovered from the wreck introduce the passengers who sailed on this doomed voyage and offer an intimate, human view of the tragedy.
