This was an absolutely fascinating and extremely well researched story of The sinking of the SS Central America which had been carrying five hundred passengers many of them returning from the Gold Rush in California in 1857 The ship ran into trouble when a hurricane hit and the SS Central America sank 200 miles of the Carolina coast The Ship was sailing from Panama to New York It had been carrying 500 passengers and 20 tons of gold from the goldfields of California worth at the time 2 million dollars Over 50 million Dollars currents valuation After 150 years of lying at the bottom of the sea an engineer from Ohio by the name of tommy Thompson set out Along with the Columbus America Discovery Group to find the Central America in eight thousand feet of water and try and make claim on the millions of Gold sitting at the bottom of the sea This book was written in 1998 and I obtained a used hard copy on as I had been fascinated when first leaning of this story This is an extremely well written and researched Account firstly of the tragic sinking of the SS Central America and her passengers and the first 150 pages of the book sets the scene and you become acuainted with Captain crew and passengers of this ship The story of the sinking is very well documented and you feel as if you are right there on the ship and feel the fear and the cold of the passengers This was a heartbreaking story of the sinking and the Captain of the ship was hailed a hero by the surviving passengers which is well documented in this story When the story moves to the 1980s and Tommy Thompson s uest to find the site of the SS Central America the book becomes a lot technical but is still fascinating to learn how deep sea robots were developed to perform heavy and complex work The third part of the story once again picks up pace and I read with baited breath to the end of this engrossing and captivating story The author Gary Kindler has written a remarkable historical account of the sinking of SS Central as well as an entertaining adventure story When I finished this account I realized there had to be to this story from when the book ended and after a little research online I was shocked and amazed at the happenings since I wonder was Gary Kindler as amazed as me at what has taken place since he wrote this book and perhaps there is another book yet to be written A fascinating tale of history science and adventure heavy on detail and uite complex but engrossing and unputdownable and a book I will certainly remember many years from now

Riveting re telling of the doomed ships final days and the crew s desperate attempt to save it This event would have been a fine book in itselfBut the book is far too reverential towards Tommy Thompson He s a clever fellow and it truly is amazing what his team accomplished in the late 80 s recovering the SS Central America But I really didn t need a full background biography through his early professional life all the while flying around in his Stupendous Man cape solving problems that bewilder mere mortals or so it s told by Gary Kinder Kinder is better when he sticks to the extreme engineering challenges inherent in deep sea salvage as exemplified by the Thresher disaster and nuclear weapon deep sea salvage I would have liked a lot background on those events so as to better set up the SS Central America recovery operation But again Kinder s a little over the top with Super Tommy always doing his Tony Stark thing We re left thinking that had Tommy worked for NASA there would now be a Pizza Hut on the moon
