Unsolved Mysteries of the Sea


Seas and oceans cover most of the Earth’s surface, yet we know less about what lies beneath them than we do about stars and planets millions of miles away. The seas are filled with intriguing mysteries: How were they formed? What gave rise to stories of sirens, mermaids, and mermen? Where did the old pirates and buccaneers hide their treasure? The answers to these questions and more can be found in Unsolved Mysteries of the Sea.


"... there's no better introduction to the wealth of fantastic legends inspired by the mystery of the sea."

NB Telegraph-Journal (October, 2004)

"Unsolved Mysteries of the Sea is a very chilling book, because it is true, and as well know, truth is stranger than fiction."

Shelf Life (August, 2004)
