With a degree in physics paid for through commercial diving, Eric Allaby's skills served his curiosity well when his diving led him into new ventures searching for shipwrecks around his home island of Grand Manan, NB. While working on a National Museum grant in the 1970s, Allaby pioneered new underwater survey techniques. His passion for shipwreck stories led him to conduct his own research, and his writing and illustration of those stories eventually led to this book.
