In 1857 the steam ship SS Central America, carrying nearly 600 passengers and 20 tons of California gold sank. The ship was lost, but nearly fifty crew members survived. The Central America remained at the bottom of the sea until it was discovered in 1989. Kinder seamlessly weaves the modern day story of the amazing technological recovery efforts together with the real life events of 1857. A fascinating and absorbing true story that will appeal to adventure readers and history buffs alike.
