THE SHIPWRECK HUNTER A Lifetime of Extraordinary Discoveries on the Ocean Floor

by | Read by Dan Woren

Contemporary Culture • 17 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Listeners may have a sinking feeling as narrator Dan Woren tells the story of the HMS HOOD. The author's recollections of a life spent searching for lost ships have the feel of the TV documentaries Mearns has been involved with. There's always the sense of the methodical work of sifting through historical records and eyewitness accounts to target the underwater searches. Woren's reading emphasizes Mearns's attention to detail yet leaves room for delight in finding a ship's hull and disappointment at the loss of a deep-sea sonar. Mearns's expeditions take listeners back to 1503 and into contemporary criminal investigations. His most personal projects have involved wartime sinkings, such as the HOOD or Australia's SYDNEY. Woren's voice reflects Mearns's concern for the sailors' families. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2018]
