Booklist Review of Discovering Titanic's Remains
Searching for the remains of the Titanic in 1985, Robert Ballard and his crew watched their monitors while guiding underwater cameras along the ocean floor almost two-and-a-half miles beneath them. They spotted the ship’s enormous boilers first, then chairs, china, and clothing, and finally the hull itself. This highly visual book includes information about the sinking of the Titanic and the challenge of locating its remains. An appended section offers a closer look at the explorers’ specialized submersible equipment. Two informative paragraphs appear on each double-page spread, along with a text box and two or more captioned pictures. Drawn from many sources, the illustrations include many color photographs as well as paintings and digital drawings and diagrams. From the Titanica series (6 titles), this very readable volume presents a topic of perennial interest.
