ALL STATIONS! DISTRESS! Don Brown's Nonfiction Account that explores the events on The Titanic disaster on April 15, 1915.
"Though gone from view, she remains fixed on the horizon of our imagination, where she steams endlessly, haunting us." from All Stations Distress
It was a perfect ship. An ocean liner like no other. "A ship even God himself could not sink." A floating city. The finest in luxurious transatlantic travel.
Its 2,228 passengers and crew represented rich celebrating their great wealth, and poor immigrants from many countries of the world, in search of a better life in America.
What happened to this perfect ship that nothing could sink? It sank.
What happened to the 2,228 lives aboard? Most of them died.
This is the story of the Titanic disaster, a factual, illustrated story, that will make you want to know more.
