In this book, Malcom Turner has brought together facts about nearly a thousand wrecks that have occurred on the coast of South Africa, from the earliest recorded Portuguese wreck, that of a vessel whose name is lost to us, in 1505, to the shipwreck of the Daeyang family in 1986. All aspects of shipwrecks and salvage are covered in the text and illustrations. The appendixes (106 pages) list in alphabetical, chronological and geographical order all the shipwrecks that have occurred on the South African coast.
