A Civil War gunboat in Pacific waters : life on board USS Saginaw / Hans Konrad Van Tilburg ; foreword by James C. Bradford and Gene Allen Smith.
In 1870, the ship sank at one of the world's most remote coral reefs; her crew was rescued sixty-eight days later after a dramatic open-boat voyage. More than 130 years later, Hans Van Tilburg led the team that discovered and recorded the Saginaw' s remains near the Kure Atoll reef.
