Tales of Abandoned, Doomed, and Haunted Vessels
There are few images more chilling than an aban- doned ship drifting alone at sea. Ghost Ships is an anthology of the best true-life—and some- times, still questionable—accounts of vessels that, for whatever reason, never made port. These stories demonstrate that the real myster- ies of seafaring life are even stranger and more unnerving than any fictional account.
Angus Konstam has worked as chief curator in museums on both sides of the Atlantic. He lives in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Hair-raising true accounts from reputable witnesses
Actual places to visit, as well as how to explore what really happened to some of these vessels
Includes dozens of full-color photographs and maps throughout
