  • Why did ships run aground or sink?
  • How did the men perform rescues?

For families, history and English teachers, scout leaders (hiking/boating survival skills), homeschool families, and museum personnel.

"A wonderful, rich resource filled with hands-on, multi-curricular lessons, and oral histories." Sarah K., Education Director, Annapolis Maritime Museum & Park, MD

"I never thought I'd teach a maritime history unit, but I'm so glad I did. This was my children's favorite class and each workshop kept them engaged and excited to learn more. There's a balance between depth of information and fun activities. A fabulous book and one I'll keep for reference." Jessi H., homeschool teacher
