Description of this Book

Shipwrecks litter the coasts and reefs of New Zealand. Disasters at sea are no longer the regular occurrence they were in the days when sea travel was the main means of coastal and international transport, yet recent wrecks like the Rena show that perils remain. Shipwrecked retells the voyages of ships doomed never to make their next port, in a jacketed hardback featuring plentiful photos and ephemera - including Eric Heath's superb colour illustrations of notable ships lost to the sea.
