by | Read by J.R. Horne

Children Ages 8+ • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

The winner of the Siebert Award for children's nonfiction translates beautifully to audio with the help of the deep, commanding voice of J.R. Horne. His authoritative voice begins with the intriguing story of the early development of the submarine, then zooms in on the Hunley, the first submarine to sink a ship. The sinking took place off the coast of Charleston in 1864, during the Civil War. Drama continues with the raising of the ship in 1995 and the mystery of reconstructing the event and identifying the bodies. An enhanced CD provides a captioned slide show that turns listeners into viewers as they see early submarine plans, a barnacle-covered Hunley, the detailed excavation and reconstruction, and photos of the crewmen's burial.
