Titanic's Passengers and Crew
It was 2:00 A.M. on April 15, 1912, in the middle of the icy Atlantic Ocean. Seventeen-year-old Jack Thayer stood on the slanted deck of the RMS Titanic and weighed his options—Jump, or die, he thought.
Titanic’s Passengers and Crew is a compilation of compelling stories about the people aboard the luxurious—and supposedly unsinkable—ship. From wealthy first-class passengers like Jack Thayer to third-class travelers and crew, readers will meet and learn the harrowing tales of some of the most noteworthy people on the ship. Large-format color images, maps, and fact boxes bring the fear and panic the passengers and crew faced into clear, terrifying focus.

School Library Journal Review of Titanica
Young Titanic fans will reach for these six volumes that cover almost every facet of the ship and its sinking. In Last Hours, for example, several diagrams and cutaways illuminate the various inner workings and levels of the boat and how exactly the iceberg damaged the vessel. Kids will learn of the ship’s construction, the passengers (many of whom were rich and famous), the fatal collision, and even related ghosts and mysterious hauntings. In all of the books, the language is clear, and there are ample brightly colored drawings and photographs to complement the text. VERDICT: A well-crafted presentation of a timeless topic. Expect a high demand from Titanic aficionados.
