The publication is dedicated to the famous sidewheeler of the past, SS Brother Jonathan; some 150 years ago the vessel got struck by the uncharted reef near Northern California and sank taking down the multi-million dollars of fresh-minted gold coins. Most of the people on board lost their lives and only nineteen could survive. The location of the sunk ship remained unknown for more than a century but was finally revealed.

In this volume that author demonstrates his research abilities. This is a truly remarkable piece of marine literature, perfectly researched and detailed, capturing the intrigue of maybe the most storied ship catastrophes on the West Coast of America. The author has beautifully captured the era and this was what made the book so engaging.

The extensive research conducted by him eventually resulted in this extremely popular publication appreciated by the naval enthusiasts from all around the world. A very entertaining though quite educational volume that can and shall be recommended to all people with the interest in the naval history, ship disasters, treasures and related researches - they will definitely find this book interesting and enjoy reading it much.
