Eyewitness to Titanic by Terri Dougherty et al

Title: Eyewitness to Titanic Titanic

Author and Illustrator: Terri Dougherty, Sean Price and Sean McCollum

Publisher: Capstone Young Readers

Published: February 2nd, 2015

Pages: 162

Rating:   5/5

The infamous ship, the Titanic, is brought back to life through eyewitness accounts from people who were involved in building it, passengers and crew survivors of its sinking and those involved in the search for and discovery of the wreck. As the blurb says, ‘It’s the story of the Titanic like you have never heard it before.’

The book is well organised and tells the  story of the ship is told from design to discovery in the depths of the ocean, with annotated photographs and illustrations to enhance the text and bring aspects to life. It includes diagrams and lots of amazing facts and eye witness accounts concerning its construction, organisation, crew, life on board and the events which preceded the sinking of this now infamous vessel. Information about the rescue of survivors, the heartbreak of losing loved ones and the bravery of those who gave their lives so others might live are all included. The more recent search for the remains of the ship and the team who succeeded in discovering it on  September 1st, 1985 are also related, as are there the quandaries concerning whether the wreck should be undisturbed as a grave site or the remaining artefacts continue to  be recovered and exhibited around the world.
