On the eve of the Civil War, a colossal steamship caught fire, flooded, and sank just east of Boston. But the doomed Connaught’s nightmare became the scene of one of the greatest rescues in maritime history, when the captain of a small cargo vessel risked everything to save the 600 souls aboard. More than a century later, a rookie treasure hunter went looking for the shipwreck and $15 million in lost gold. He uncovered a long-forgotten story of piracy, treason, and war on the high seas.
In “The Wreck,” journalist David Wolman details a dramatic calamity at sea and the painstaking quest to find its remains. The result is a narrative about the power of courage and resilience, and the risks of magical thinking and hero worship.
