Sea of Storms
Over the centuries the perilous coast of Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly have become the graveyard for thousands of ships. This book tells the dramatic stories of twenty one of these shipwrecks, carefully curated to represent the different eras of Sail, Steam and Modern Technology. The
The story of each wreck is vividly reconstructed by Richard Larn whose experience as a diver on many of the wrecks spans seven decades. They are further brought to life through the paintings and drawings of Oliver Hurst, who captures the elemental force of the sea and sensitively depicts key moments in the lives and deaths of those involved.
