Summary "It's all here. The financiers and founders of the White Star Line; the building and launch; the ship's features; the crew and passengers; the fateful collision; the scramble for lifeboats; the sinking and the survivors; the high-tech discovery of the wreck; the movie.... 882-1/2 Amazing Answers to Your Questions About the Titanic is packed with all of the intriguing details and fascinating facts that tell the true story. It puts myths to rest and confirms the truth. Was the Titanic really unsinkable? Were third-class passengers locked down below? Were there enough lifeboats? Was there a Jack Dawson? Did the Heart of the Ocean diamond really exist? Was there a murderer aboard the ship? It tells of the small tragedies for some survivors. Deceased violinist Jock Hume's family received a bill for $3.50 for the cost of his uniform. A baby was kidnapped on board the rescue ship, the Carpathia, by a woman who had lost her child. Jack Thayer, who never got over the death of his son in the water, took his own life thirty years after the sinking."-- Provided by publisher.
