Robert Ballard was the first to spot the ruins of Titanic.
In Ghost Liners, he tells the story of five famous ships lost at sea. Ballard relies heavily on survivors stories.
This book is illustrated with large paintings and underwater photography

In this book Robert Ballard makes an interesting topic available for children. Not only does he discuss the sinking of the Titanic, but he also discusses the sinking of four other ships. It is a very interesting book with some surprising facts.

Perhaps one of my all time favorite childhood books. I was and always have been so fascinated by shipwrecks. This book does an amazing job at diving into the stories behind not just the sinking, but what lead up to them and the state of the world at the time. I am still amazed at how well presented

this book is to the point that even as an adult I still look at my copy every once and a while after all these years.
