12 real life adventures from the casebook of NUMA, the National Underwater Marine Agency. A steamboat goes up in flames, and down to the bottom of the sea. A locomotive plunges into a creek, and vanishes into mystery. A German U-boat sends an American troop transport, and eight hundred on board, to a watery grave, on Christmas eve...Clive Cussler and his crack team of NUMA (National Underwater Marine Agency, a nonprofit organization that searches for historic shipwrecks) volunteers have found the remains of these and other tragic wrecks. Here, for the first time, are the dramatic, true accounts of the twelve most remarkable underwater discoveries made by Cussler and his team. As suspenseful and satisfying as the best of his Dirk Pitt novels, The Sea Hunters is a unique story of true commitment and courage. Other authors just write about it. Cussler does it for real.
