Format: Hardcover
For those who have read the novels of Clive Cussler the NUMA is a part of every fictional story the writer has written, and I have read them all. What I did not know is that The NUMA is very real, and over decades has discovered, and in some instances recovered lost wrecks including those that sailed beneath the sea, upon it, or even sailed in the air above it.
The National Underwater Marine Agency is not a treasure hunting organization; rather they seek to solve mysteries that are in some cases many centuries old. They take nothing from the wrecks they locate, and when they do find historical vessels and their associated debris fields, it is States and Colleges and Universities that are given the locations to raise, preserve and restore pieces of History from a variety of Nations.
The NUMA is comprised almost exclusively of volunteers and outside funding again is almost exclusively from the proceeds from the sales of Mr. Cussler's novels, and his non-fiction work, "The Sea Hunters I", and now "The Sea Hunters II". I, for a reason I cannot justify, passed on reading the first of these two books, and now that I have read the second I will be getting number one forthwith. The history this book contained that was either new, or clarified what I thought I knew was worth every penny the book costs, and the hours spent enjoying the tales.
Some of the material for his novels originates on these trips that have taken him and his son and friends around the globe. Some of the quaint restaurants and hotels you may have read about in many instances are real. His son is named Dirk just like the primary character in his books, and Mr.

This is the second of this type of book from Clive cussler who I must admit is a favourite author of mine,despite a lot of predictability ( dirk Pitt series the best)

What it is ,is a more factual book about actual wrecks he has researched and gone looking for.Each story starts with a semi fictional story about how the wreck occurred,the story being fact based but made a lot more interesting in the form it is written.The story,then transcends into how Clive and his teamed research and sometimes find and excavate the wreck,whether it be boat,train etc,at sea or river based and what is left and what is done.

Really interesting and obviously,Clive has an unrivalled passion which comes through.
You don't have to read the book at one go,I tend to read other things,then when waiting for new books to arrive,I will read a couple of wreck stories then come back later.

I think these are probably the best things he's done,but obviously his fictional writing pays for his hobby,which he then uses for more fictional writing...a great way as you always get a lot of truth and history behind the stories

Clive Cussler is one of the best fictional writers of our time, if you are interested in the sea. This one is a set of true stories about wreck finding & a most interesting read, recommend it to any body who likes this sort of read & is interested in a light look at history of the sea & ships.

As a Clive Custler fan, I have also read both Sea Hunter 1 and 2. It is fascinating how Clive has assembled historic background to explain how each wreck occured. To all with an interest in history and site surveys it is
educational how how Clive and his companions went about their research and surveys. The long hours and equally large bills to fund the not always successful surveys, are a reminder to all would be surveyors that looking for shipwrecks is akin feeding donkeys with caviar covered strawberries. Not for the poor or faint hearted.
A fascinating read.
