Checked it out for my goddaughter. Overall, it was a decent book. This is definitely a book for younger readers. Had information that I didn't expect and some that I did. Good book for youngsters. :)

James Delgado's SHIPWRECKS OF THE WESTWARD MOVMENT shines a light on a little-known subject - the role small ships played in the opening of the West. Those canoes, riverboats, steamboats, flatboats, paddle-wheelers, clipper ships and brigs ferried supplies and people to various cities and ports. Sometimes they came a cropper and sank...only to be discovered years later. And several, as revealed in Delgado's fascinating book, were salvaged and put on display in museums.

SHIPWRECKS FROM THE WESTWARD MOVEMENT, part of the Franklin Watts library on underwater archaeology, is intended for readers 9-12. Delagdo's text mixes history and archaeology in a fashion sure to appeal to that audience. He relates the history and fate of a number of sunken ships: the supply ship Isabella, the steamship Beaver, the brig Sterling, the whaling ship Niantic, etc. Vintage illustrations and photographs along with contemporary pix of salvaged ships provide a then-and-now record.

I have to say I enjoyed SHIPWRECKS OF THE WESTWARD MOVEMENT even more than Delgado's WRECKS OF AMERICAN WARSHIPS. I had not been aware of how important river- and sea-borne shipping was to the settling of the West. Secondly, it was fascinating to discover where some of those ships were found. The Niantic was found buried under landfill in downtown San Francisco; the Arabia in a Missouri cornfield in an old riverbed; and so on.

For a number of reasons, Delagdo's book should appeal to young - and old! - readers. Recommended.
