Description

A fine shipwreck has always represented sport, pleasure, treasure, and in many cases, the difference between living well and just getting by. From all around Britain Bella Bathurst has uncovered the secret history of wrecking, from beach orgies so wild that few participants survived until morning, to remote cottages fitted with silver candelabra, via cows hung with lanterns to lure unwary ships to ruin and the Cornish reputation for drowning survivors. 325 pages PB
